Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Former Town & Country magazine editor Sarah Medford collected 30 of the top homes showcased in the magazine over the past 10 years, with breathtaking color photographs and fascinating celebrity stories. Many of those home owners featured, in fact, aren’t household names, although their families might claim some local and industry fame. As expected, New York City reigns as top urban area represented, with London and various California coastal areas not far behind. Four sections—On the Town, In the Country, Artful Living, Glorious Getaways—order the compilation. Inserted between the sections are four design forums: opinion editorials on how to plan living spaces, for instance, or kitchens for cooks, all highlighting the perspectives of well-known designers. An accessible, friendly narrative takes us into the homes of Maine-dwelling painter Alex Katz, the Moroccan hideaway favored by Liz and Martin Landau, L.A. arts patron Frances Brody, movie director Spike Lee’s East Side townhome, and actress Mariska Hargitay’s nest in Manhattan, among many others. One guarantee is that at least a few pages will prove drool-worthy for most readers. --Barbara Jacobs

Length: 2:28 Mins
A coffee table book of distinct interiors that offers a glimpse into the homes of several celebrity and famous socialites. I thoroughly enjoyed reading their stories and viewing the photographs. Take a few moments to view my posted video. I flip through the book and give you a chance to look at the book and decide if you want to buy or not. Form your own opinion. I gave it 5-stars.

XOXO-

What a disappointment! Some of the photos are grainy and old and the write-ups are way too long. Most of the style appears dated, as if I was browsing an old Architectural Digest or Elle Decoration magazine. As a matter of fact, some of the homes eg. the Krakoff's house was published in Elle Decor mag about 4 years ago.
The last section- The Glorious Getaways was like a rush job.
House and Garden magazine (UK) does a better job especially their Insider Lifestyle section.
Given a chance,if I had the opportunity to browse this book, I would not have bought it but rather put my money on a subcription of either House and Garden or The World of Interiors magazine.

I was really looking forward to receiving this book because I love the magazine so much. This was such a disappointment! The entire book is full of old, outdated, grainy photos and pages of rambling text. Instead of enjoying the book and being inspired by the interior and architectural design, I couldn't flip through it fast enough. Save your money.

I received this book as a gift and I love it! It's thoughtfully organized and very well written. It gives a great overview of the art of the possible and plenty of food for thought. I love design and shelter magazines and will look at the beautiful homes for inspiration for years to come.

I like to see how famous people live and what motivates their decorating style other than a professional they have hired to create their flawless environments. This book was interesting to me because it featured some interesting personalities that I have admired for different reasons throughout the years. I particularly enjoyed some of their comments about being a public figure, both the ups and the downs. It makes me appreciate my privacy. I can walk the street and shop in peace. Many of them cannot. Their interior were flawless and the photography was awesome. Great Job and I look forward to the author next project.

Dullish. More text than I need, and the most interesting interiors (I like traditional rooms, fyi) seem to have fewer pictures. But you might like it if you need a coffee table for your madeira. More money down the drano. Eck.
