Bunny shares her knowledge like no one else. Whether it is her lecture at a function or her beautiful books-starting with one of my favorites,"On Garden Style", she gives concrete information that we can all use-not just information that we can only dream about.Her knowledge is based on tried and true facts. This book is proof of that."Scrapbook For Living" is not written by someone being "coy" that gives you part of the information you need and you have to figure out the rest.It is written by someone trying to help every reader achieve their dream home no matter what the size or location.
I love the photography in this book. It is interesting and unique as it should be. It catches the attention and holds it through the last page.
I can hardly wait to rearrange my linen closet using her suggestions-Brilliant
In SCRAPBOOK FOR LIVING, Bunny's emphasis is on living: how to create rooms that are beautiful AND livable. If you've seen rooms decorated by Bunny Williams--especially her own homes--you know they combine style with livability. They're homey. They're rooms where dogs are allowed on the furniture--but they still look great in magazines. Bunny shares the inside details of how she accomplishes this.
Bunny stresses function in this book--how to make rooms work in an attractive way. There's tips for every room--from mudrooms, to living rooms and libraries, to project rooms, to bedrooms and baths. Covering A to Z design topics such as selecting chairs to bringing a home to life with flowers, scents, art and fireplaces, Bunny teaches the essentials of comfort. It's the gems she shares along the way--any place you want a window and don't have one, put a mirror--that make this book invaluable. Another favorite tip is take a camera with you and photograph what you love for your own design scrapbooks. It's intriguing to read what inspires Bunny, including her nine favorite design books and design resources. Bunny says when she sees a home full of books, she knows the owners are likely to be interesting. This book's pictures are MORE about illustrating the ideas in it--less about seeing all the beautiful rooms she has decorated.Read more ›
Well. To my great disappointment, our Bunny was led astray by poor art direction and an absolutely miserable approach to the photography in this book. I was so surprised --and dismayed-- that I spent another hour really examining what it was that fell so short, and came to a clear conclusion: The copy's great, but the art direction and approach to photography are just awful.
This book was not inexpensive to produce; there are scads of color photographs, it's not a small or short book, and there is no scrimping on paper quality, binding or other production details. To my relief, Bunny's actual tips were very interesting and helpful-- very Bunny-worthy -- and the text is written crisply and engagingly. The tips are organized interestingly and are to the point. However, the layout and design stick to a very rigid format of mostly tiny photos on the right hand side and text on the left side. On every. Single. Page.
But far more disconcerting than the overall very uninspired art direction and layout were the actual shots. The very essence of such a book! Rejecting the use of full page photos except in rare exception, the book consists of page after page of tiny, cluttered, often awkwardly composed or poorly lit --or worse, irrelevant-- photos on almost every right hand page of the relentlessly boring format. Using the 12-tiny-photo-gimmick on page after page was a huge mistake.Read more ›

The book has great ideas but the small pictures are a bit tedious to look at. I prefer larger photos.Published on August 11, 2013 by B. L. Williams
I have all of the Bunny Williams book and I love this book as much as the others. This book goes into more details on how to design and operate a home. Very pleased.Published on July 28, 2013 by Joan Hensley
