I expected more ideas from this book due to the cover...I thought I would see several photos and ideas on traditional country as well as more updated visions of country. While some photos are nice, it is more of a fabric catalogue for the company CABBAGES & ROSES. This would be okay, if they stretched out their ideas with more interiors...I was not very impressed or inspired.

I really love Cabbages & Roses, and I have all the Christina Strutt' s books, I think.
I especially loved her guide to green housekeeping, which is more than interesting.
This book has really beautiful pictures and some ideas are interesting, but it is true
that it looks more like a gorgeous brochure for all their fabrics. Each room is different,
with different styles, the only common points are the Cabbages & Roses fabrics, which, sometimes,
look a little weird in these kinds of situations.
By the way, even if the pictures are great, I don't always like the styles of these rooms.
It is more like they had to make a book to make a book, not really to tell a new story.
I give four stars, because this book is pleasant after all, and I like the author, but if it had
been written by someone unknown, I think I would have just passed it...

I bought this book after seeing it on Design Sponge and it did not disappoint! The book depicts a number of different homes in this book -- beach houses, country houses, lofts, farms - even a houseboat! There is even an apartment in NYC, it really shows that you can give your home a country feel no matter where you live. This book is so inspirational - the look is so accessible and homey, yet really put together and elegant. Highly recommend!

This book is the literary version of an infomercial and not a good one at that! If I had read the jacket before buying the book I NEVER would have bought it. The book tries to be something for everyone and imo ends up being NOTHING for anyone. I LOVE Country, cottage, I live in an 1886 farmhouse and devour good design books, sadly this doesn't come close. I am NOT interested in reading about a HOUSEBOAT....OMG....where does a houseboat fit into "At Home With Country"? I feel the same about a New York loft and a studio apartment. I wish I could at least say the book would look good on a table with my collection of other books but then I would have to look at it every day. This book is a HUGE dissappointment.....there are so many wonderful, enriching books on the subject, don't waste your time or money on this one.
