I'd give this book 2.5 stars.

I was a little disappointed by this book, although this doesn't necessarily mean it's a crappy book.
It had to do with the style of the apartments, which is very modern and quite minimalistic, and I just discovered it was way too modern for me.
Everything seemed to be done by designers, and I just wished the pictures would show other styles, besides hypermodern, as well.
The book is divided in handy chapters like: floors, dividing and unifying elements, furniture and lighting, amongst others, and subdivided in even smaller chapters (the chapter on floors for example, is divided in: carpets, wood, tiles etc.), which I find a good thing. In those chapters you can find photos and ideas accordingly.
Unfortunately, this book has 500 one liner ideas and little else (only a mini introduction of a few sentences starting each chapter), and those ideas aren't direclty linked to the photographs.
For example, you see pictures of different lamps in the lighting section, and then there are ideas like:
265. A wooden bookcase can be lit by strings of spotlights set on each shelf.
266. Apart from general lighting, a bathroom needs wall lamps above the mirror and next to the shower.
But are there any specific pictures to demonstrate these tips? Usually not, and if there are, you have to figure it out yourself.

In short:
Pros: beautiful book, especially for that price, with lots of color photographs, good chapter division, and lots of ideas, which are quite useful
Cons: only hypermodern, designer style and the 500 ideas don't have a direct relationship to the photos, which makes it annoying to read
