I like the blog for inspiration and decorating ideas but was disappointed with the book. I was expecting the unexpected...a differentiator of other decorating books and what one can find on a blog site. I'm gravitating towards Mary McDonald and others. I was a Twitter follower of HC but found it too rude at times. Perhaps I'm becoming tainted. If you want to memorialize a blog in a coffee table book, this may hit the spot for you.

I am a fan of Heather Clawson's blog as a great resource for precedent images for mood boards & my own design work, so I hate to admit that I was disappointed by the book. The photos did not quite inspire me & the work spaces of the people featured all felt very aesthetically similar & very familiar - i.e. who hasn't seen J.Crew's creative director Jenna Lyon's office before? What design aficionado hasn't seen Bunny Williams office workspace on various blogs in the past, etc., etc?

Considering the great contacts HC has made in the industry (having been one of the 1st interior design bloggers out there & thereby having a massive public reach) I expected the unexpected: a truly unique, curated & exclusive perspective into the workspaces of NYC's creative elite that we have not seen before. Truthfully, if you are looking for inspiration & personal style imagery, you would find more original material at The Coveteur or The Selby. I would have returned it but I liked the orange linen book cover & don't have any orange books in my library.

Lovely photos as usual from Habitually Chic and Heather Clawson .... But after flipping thru the photos ... ehhh ... I've seen most of them before. Most of the photos are not attainable for people, and it seems to miss on the inspiration quotient. I was really hoping that it would be more of a "learning" pictorial on how to create a great workspace. Or stylish workplaces in homes.

Total misunderstanding on my part I guess - I thought this was a "decorating" book of sorts. Not. This was definitely a disappointment.

thus, my review will not have the "Verified Purchaser" declaration about it, nonetheless, wanted to pipe in and say I really enjoy this book. Love looking at the real environments these designers have created for themselves; and, it is chock full of good ideas that I want to incorporate into my space.

I enjoyed this book. I found it a bit of fun looking at the office space of designers I admired. I also love the website / blog by heather clawson and this is a good indication of the authors style and what you can expect to see in this book. Not for people wanting decorating advice, more a sneak peek at personal space.
