Traditional craftsmanship using simple forms, Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass, and beautiful dark hardwood accents are just a few things that come to mind when you talk about the arts and crafts style which, in reality, was a reaction to persnickety Victorianism and the materialistic machine age. The quaint calm style is very desirable as is the welcoming informality and ease of the house’s design. Here are a few books to help you achieve this beautiful look in your home.
