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.

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.
“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.’”
“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.”
