Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent viewbook if you want to get a taste of contemporary London interiors. It has very modern, a bit more classic and very simple interiors as well. There is very little text in the book, but the photos are all full page and very well made, high quality. A fun book to flip through and get inspiration from!

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By nonpareil TOP 1000 REVIEWER on November 9, 2004
Format: Paperback
Artsy black & white pics show London street scenes in the first (small) section. Then the large sections of excellent color photography illustrate a variety of interiors, then decorating details.

Most of the space is given to the pictorial, as befits a book on how things look; what little trilingual (English-French-German) text exists is poetically descriptive.

Styles represented tend toward the spare and eclectic - we're not talking about conspicuous consumption or Martha wannabes here - probably "urban bohemian" is the general trend. Architectural details are proudly and blatantly incorporated into the overall scheme of things... It's a work well worth inclusion in your library.

I guess what disappointed me most about this book (besides the size, which I expected) is that I've seen the interiors in other books before. Discovering that, I thought a) I have better, more detailed books with the same photographs and b) Taschen is usually better than this. The book has almost no descriptions and relies on tiny print in the back saying things like "detail of_______'s interior." At least in other books, their descriptions tell you about the objects- how they were acquired, etc- not just describing the obvious. All in all, yes, the pictures are nice but it's not a necessity for my library.

Bought as a holiday gift for my travel partner after our trip to London. Gorgeous photography. She keeps it out on her coffee table and loves it (although it's smaller than I imagined - only about 8" x 5" - so if you're envisioning a larger coffee table book, this isn't it - but the quality of the photos are magnificent. Gorgeous London interiors give inspiration and aesthetic value - anglophile or not.
