With evocative text by Judith Miller and inspiring photographs by James Merrell, Wooden Houses explores the decorative potential of wood in our homes. Wooden houses range from rustic cabins and timbered cottages to elegant North American clapboard houses with shaded verandas. Wood has always played an invaluable part in construction, architecture and interior decoration and has long been valued for its practical benefits. Its insulating qualities, for example, made it an obvious choice for Scandinavian homes, and so the familiar log houses came into existence. But the vast decorative potential of wood has ensured its continued use, as evidenced by 19th-century houses with elaborately carved gables and porches.Indoors, wood surrounds us in many ways.
