In his best-selling first book, Gil Schafer explored the qualities that make a house a home architecture, landscape, and decoration. In his eagerly awaited second book, Schafer shows how traditional and classical principles can blend with a sense of place to create beautifully realized homes in a range of styles, all with the satisfying tensions of fancy and simple, past and present. In part one, Schafer shares his essential tool kit for building a house that succeeds in both craft and emotion: from how to read the landscape to incorporating memory to learning how to balance both fancy and simple elements. In part two, he presents seven homes in depth, including an apartment with a view of Central Park, a hillside cottage in Northern California, an updated Connecticut Colonial on a large farm, an Adirondacks camp on Lake Placid, and a stunning A-frame on the coast of Maine. While each is unique, all the homes are beautifully livable, at ease on the land they occupy, in style, scale, and materials: models that readers will want to emulate in their own homes.

"But the completed house - which will be included in Mr. Schafer's book "A Place to Call Home: Tradition, Style, and Memory in the New American House," published in September by Rizzoli - is no starkly minimalist abode" -The New York Times "Award-winning architect and author Gil Schafer celebrated the art of living with a lecture inspired by his book, Creating Places to Call Home: How Tradition, Style, and Memory Can Inspire Ways of Living" -ArchitecturalDigest.com "A Place to Call Home (Rizzoli, $55) explores the way Schafer's architectural styles, materials, scale and even the misplaced flight of fancy interface with siting to establish the air of history and a sense of place. " -Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles "In A Place to Call Home, his follow up to The Great American House, Gil explores the elements that make living spaces personal spaces" -Schumacher "On My Bookshelf: Fall Must-Haves" -La Dolce Vita Blog "I've professed my love of pre-ordering books before. You order them, forget about them, and when they arrive it feels like Christmas morning." -The Neo-Trad "Award-winning architect and author of the new book A Place to Call Home, Gil Schafer believes the most successful houses are the ones that celebrate living - houses with timeless charm that are imbued with memory and a distinct sense of place. It's this dialogue between past and present that enables him to interpret traditional principles for a multiplicity of architectural styles within contemporary ways of living." -Northshore Magazine "Gil is a classical architect who builds homes "the way they used to" yet perfectly adapted for modern living." -The Glam Pad "Celebrated American architect Gil Schafer is known for creating personal and timeless homes that celebrate the lives of their owners. They are spaces intended for making and keeping memories." -River Oaks Houston
