From acclaimed architect and designer Keith Summerour comes an alluring new book of carefully crafted dwellings that redefine the idea of home for today.
When we think about what home is, many of us would say a house that is soulful and welcoming, a place with an inviting porch and a lush garden, a welcoming entryway and well-crafted living spaces that will nurture our private moments and expand to welcome guests. In this alluring new book, Keith Summerour shares nine houses, exploring their architecture, interiors, and grounds, to illustrate a new idea of home. Reinterpreting and making new his own Southern legacy that speaks both of aristocratic charm and homespun appeal, these homes range from rustic retreats that draw their power from the land to elegant manor houses, but all share extraordinary character and charm that nod to history while reflecting the way people wish to live in the world today.
Enriched by the work of some of the top interior decorators working today, including Beth Webb, Barbara Westbrook, Circa Interiors, and Liza Bryan, as well as world-renowned landscape designers Jeremy Smearman and John Howard, and beautifully illustrated with all-new photography, Creating Home is the ultimate dream book.

STRONG CONTRIBUTORS: Featuring the architectural work of Keith Summerour, whose architecture has been featured in AD, Garden & Gun, Coastal Living, as well as acclaimed and very popular interior designers Beth Webb, Barbara Westbrook, Circa Interiors, and Liza Bryan as well as world-renowned landscape designers Jeremy Smearman and Alex Smith, whose work is regularly featured in Veranda, House Beautiful and other top shelter magazines.

THE SOUTH SELLS: The romance with the American South remains potent today. Witness the success of such magazines as Garden & Gun, and as books like The Welcoming House and The Home Within Us have shown, there is a big market for books on contemporary Southern architecture and interiors.

ALL NEW PHOTOGRAPHY: Shot by Simon Upton.

LIKE THE GREAT AMERICAN HOUSE, Creating Home features both architecture, interiors, and gardens of nine unique Southern homes. It will serve as an appealing resource for people interested in interior design and upscale, casual living.

Architect Keith Summerour, whose work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Garden & Gun, and Coastal Living, was raised in Alabama and trained at Auburn University, and his firm is now based in Atlanta, Georgia, though his projects range from coast to coast.

“Keith Summerour embraces his approach to classical design in his first book, set to be released next month. The Atlanta-based architect takes readers on a tour through some of his projects, from renovations to newly built abodes, that showcase his interpretation of classical style. To round out the volume, Summerour shares photos of his private country residence that he designed in rural Georgia with a 70-foot-high stone tower.” 

“In his new book Creating Home: Design for Living (Rizzoli, $50), Summerour writes of his own country house, ’I have learned to adjust myself to my home’s personality, just as I might accept the quirks of a special, appealingly complicated friend.’”
Architectural Digest

“An architect whose work is classically rooted, Summerour taps into his Southern heritage, creating houses that are both soulful and respectful of the land on which they sit. Whether located in the city or the country, a Summerour-designed house is not just dreamy to look at, it’s a lesson in how to live comfortably, too.”
