Historical Interiors Of Alberta
A Guide to Restoring and Decorating your Heritage Home
Learn How to Restore, Decorate & Preserve Your Historic Home
This book is a valuable resource to help you understand how historic interiors were designed. By knowing about the social norms and how interior space functioned at the time it is easier to bring back the historic feel to your home yet maintain modern conveniences. While historic exteriors are the public face of our architectural resources, period interiors complete them and bring the historic continuity and charm into the home.”
David Holdsworth, Heritage Planner
