Probably the best interior design book I've read so far. The idea here is to see how you can create your own style by collecting your favorite things. If you use your eye and your heart, things that normally don't go together will work. You can be your own decorator.

You don't need to spend a lot of money or do a lot of DIY or have a perfect house (though it helps to have a decent house, some money for paint and flea-markets, and some craft/furniture-repair skills). You can have a coffee table that's bigger than your couch, if that's what works for you. You can have brightly cheerful kids' rooms without giving them plastic furniture. You can have a studio apartment that welcomes guests and still have a real bed (not Murphy or daybed). Don't worry about the rules, think freely about what you like.

You may not like any of *many* homes shown here. You may, like me, wish that floor plans were included so you could see how the rooms fit & flowed together in each home. But I don't see how you could spend any time with this and not be inspired to find ways to get rid of the pieces in your home that you don't love, and to bring in, repurpose, salvage, or build some that you do.

There were some beautiful pictures in here. It was interesting seeing how other real life people decorate their homes. I felt that some of them were done beautifully and were something that could actually be implemented. Other things didn't seem really applicable to real-life people unless said real-life people were insanely rich. And others were just..... hideous. But, different people have different tastes, so someone else may really like the decorating style of the man who collects everything ever made of the Jolly Green Giant's sidekick Sprout. I wouldn't mind checking this book out again.… (més)
