Design Book: Restoring a House in the City

Issue 44 · British Estates · November 2, 2009

New on the design bookshelf: Restoring a House in the City, by Ingrid Abramovitch; $26.40 (list price $40) at Amazon, featuring more than 20 real-life renovations—from town houses to row houses to brownstone fixer-uppers. Also included: practical information about hiring architects and contractors and helpful restoration notes on topics ranging from fireplaces to ornamental plaster. Among the projects are designer Darryl Carter's 1920 Beaux-Arts town house in Washington, DC, and Julianne Moore's now-famous 1839 Greek Revival town house in the West Village, overhauled by MADE LLC in Brooklyn.
