Format: Hardcover
I bought this book on a whim and it was even better than it seemed at first glance. The cover shot is an eclectic bohemian glam style, but the 'easy elegance' concept applies to multiple styles including modern, country and retro. Bartlett walks you through the concept of 'easy elegance' by reviewing it's four tenets: comfort, simplicity, function and individuality. Then it explains how to establish this in each room of the house.

You'd be surprised what a relief the 'easy elegance' vibe is. It's all about making a functional home full of what you love. It is not about details, paint colors and finishing touches. Bartlett is all about establishing the right vibe in your home, injecting yourself through your choice of furnishings.

It is just the book I've been looking for.

This book didn't compliment my own personal style or decorating approach. I can see where the decorating ideas were easy but I didn't think there was much "elegance." For example, page 74 shows a sofa with a shredded seat cover and faded paint. The author comments this "only add to its allure, giving it character and interest." I can handle the faded paint and possibly faded upholstery but anytime fabric is shredded (a severe tear in this case), I don't see the allure or character and I lost complete interest.

This is more for the person who seeks very easy, simple and relaxed style for their home and not particular in mixing and "not" matching color, style and design. However, great photography in this book.

This is absolutely the best design book I've come across so far, the pictures are so beautifully alluring that in creates a deep curiosity to see what the words actually say to describe the image and its contents. If only finding the beautiful furniture was a easy as fliping through the gorgeous pages.

What is elegance and how can we achieve it in our home? Ms. Bartlett answers this question and guides us on the concepts of simplicity, comfort and function while maintaining stylish individuality through design. Gorgeous photographs demonstrate several renditions of elegance through the use of old and new elements. Every room, as well as outdoor space, is addressed and each style is relaxed, approachable and easily accomplished without looking "decorated." A must-have book for fans of an understated yet elegant approach to decorating.
