The photos are beautiful, but I was disappointed in the narrow range of styles present in the book. Most of the pictures are of asian style with a little South American and India style thrown in. As far as I could tell, there were no pictures of tribal/african style, or other less-well represented styles in mainstream decorating books.
I gave the book as many stars as I did for the photos and for the authors at least trying to publish a more diversified book on style. I would have liked to give it more stars, but I was too disappointed in it.
