Great interiors and beautiful photos.

Unfortunately I didn't find anything that I felt was inspirational or "new".

I don't "feel" the luxe-ness of the rooms.

Format: Hardcover
If you like sophisticated, fresh, glamorous design, which is very popular now, you'll enjoy the pictures and quotes from designers in this book. It's a great collection of the most up-to-date, livable contemporary design in one book, that has a sophisticated, glamorous edge. Elements of glamorous decor, whether they be chandeliers or daybeds, are combined in successful rooms utilizing the design so you see how rooms can be put together in an original way. This book should be in style for some time as it integrates classic elements of glamour with the more contemporary enactments of it.

The book definitely has a modern edge as the cover picture demonstrates, although I liked some rooms inside better than the cover picture. There's an eclectic mix inside to inspire you.

For all of us who are devastated at the closing of Metropolitan Home magazine, this book is a little consolation prize now that there isn't that monthly treat of the magazine's arrival. It is quintessential Met Home Modern, but with a wonderful overlay of spectacular and helpful designer quotes. Each chapter highlights a specific area of the home, and each is filled with extraordinary yet "doable" ideas to freshen most any home--from a small apartment to a huge house. GREAT gift!

Let me begin by stating that I am an interior designer so I look for very unique and clever ways to design and decorate. I figured this book would be filled with inspiration and new ideas to be inspired by, being that it is supposed to be a collective of Metropolitan Home Magazine's best interior shots.
Unfortunately I didn't find anything that I felt was inspirational or "new". Page after page was filled with expected design schemes and nothing that really knocked my socks off.
Again, I come form a place of harsh critique but I did expect a little more from Met Home. Maybe this is a glipmse of why the magazine has gone belly up!
I would not buy this book again if I had the second opportunity, if you know what I mean.

The photograph on the cover is the best in the book. It gives the impression that the book is glamorous and elegant... when in fact the rest of the photos are underwhelming and not all original. Image quality is good, though.

Format: Hardcover
One of my favorite design books. This will introduce a newcomer to a variety of designers, e.g., Jamie Drake and Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz. It's a great design book to start off with if you like the "glamorous" look but are not sure what direction to take.

Love this book!!!!! It is fresh and beautiful and inspiring--truly an amazing resource. The loss of Metropolitan Home magazine is a huge disappointment; fortunately this book offers some consolation for the magazine's loyal readers.
