This is a good book on the basics of how to decorate a coastal home. For the novice in "beachy" decor or the landlubber who craves a coastal look in their landlocked home, it gives general information about paint colors, lighting, accessories, furniture choices, utilizing the natural beauty of the ocean view, and use of a variety of textures to enhance the seaside home. The photography is superb, but i found the colors atonal and drab at times and the distressed furniture and "shabby chic" look somewhat boring and unappealing. The authors' tone is quite sophisticated and they seem to write with a definite European sensibility and flair.

I have seen this book in many exclusive homeware stores throughout Sydney [Australia] at quite a high mark up - so was easily tempted to purchase on Amazon with competitive pricing and AUD being quite good at the time. Overall this book is both an inspirational & aspirational book. It can easily sit comfortably on a coffee table or - as in my case in my design library as a resource to refer to for pure visual & wordsmith candy. I enjoyed looking through this book - however if you are thinking with will give you a blow-by-blow directive on how to set up a Coastal style - this is not the book for you - this is at a higher interpretive aesthetic level. All the same an incredibly gorgeous book and one worth adding to your library. Enjoy.

This book is just what I've been looking for. I love beach-style living and decorating and this book delivers. Full of beautiful photos and great ideas on how to have this look in anyone's home.

Living on the east coast of Australia, and only 100 mtrs from the sea, I found this book helpful and inspiring. We have used some of its ideas for our beach house and they have worked well. If you are doing up a beach house it is certainly worth buying. Makes a great coffee table book also.

I got this because I wanted pretty pictures, like many of the reviews said it would. But many of the pictures are small and close ups. So I'm kinda disapointed.

It was more like a coffee table display book. I was looking for inspiration to build a real beach home. It was not what I was looking for.

I absolutely adore this book, I'm redecorating my home in a coastal style and it's given me so many ideas. It will also look gorgeous on my new coffee table.

We found this book to be everything we expected... it provides great ideas on beach/coastal style decorating. It was relatively inexpensive and has been enjoyed equally by our friends and family. We would highly recommend it.
