Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House was published by Rizzoli in March 2012. Each home pictured and described in the book showcases meticulously designed exteriors and interiors with unified elements, resulting in a display of homes that are aesthetically pleasing from all vantage points and floor plans that reflect the various homeowners’ lifestyles. The book’s chapters provide a look at homes and communities that pay homage to America’s architectural heritage and thematic styles. Each of the book’s showcased homes represents today’s relaxed lifestyle and offers insight about blending elements of Classical design with Southern charm, even for homes outside the South.
The southern vernacular is a design aesthetic that translates well to all cities, states and communities, especially when paired with the historic architectural fabric of other regions. “People are drawn to the warmth, comfort and hospitality that the architecture of the South exudes, and they want to capture that feeling in their homes, no matter where they live,” says Daily. “We illustrate this in our book with a house in the Hamptons and several second-home luxury cabins in a mountain community. Clients are now commissioning us to design homes outside the South, which is leading to the application of Southern sensibilities for houses from Montana to Maine and Texas to Idaho.”
