Good not great, too many ritzy home pics and not enough average room decors. Less words would have been preferred.

I finally purchased this one, so glad I did. Even the cover is hypnotic. Currently taking my time and enjoying page by page. I now love the color blue so much it is my most favorite on the color wheel. I will be using this as a reference guide when I redo my living room. I encourage anyone to give this book a try.

Isn't blue the best colour? Or colours.
Stephanie Hoppen is positive - there are lots of them!
Ice blue and turquoise, navy and and lavender; even purple is a blue colour - did you know?
It can be French or Gustavian, modern or traditional, sensual or soothing - anything you make it. And you can make it - after you read this book that gives you inspiration and a craving for creating beautiful interiors.
Great photos, full of colours and textures you want to touch.
Yes, and don't miss the addresses at the back!

This just doesn't live up to my expectations in terms of written content or the interiors shown. One example of this might be: Early on there is a photo of a room that is not particularly well put together or appealing and has some curvy furniture. The room is tagged as "Organic". For me, this was neither accurate nor insightful.
