Sitting down and reading this book is like a guided trip through the world of design. It shows how anyone can have fine things on even a shoe string budget and how to use your purchases in an elegant and timeless manner. It is totally inspiring and makes me want to go to the nearest flea market to see what treasures I can find. It will open your eyes to a new way of looking at design and entertaining. Kudos to Eddie and Jaithan for writing such a fabulous book with amazing images. Even the book itself is done with an elegant touch, with its thick pages and the fun lead-in page on it's brightly colored paper. If you need inspiration to get out of your decorating rut, this is the book for you. Anyone can have a beautiful and elegant home if you use some Eddie's advice!!!

Modern Mix is everything a young style enthusiast needs! This book has taught me how to decorate with all of the family treasures I love while still curating my own sense of style. It will inspire you to add wild color and scout out flea markets, but also keep you honed in on classic styling elements. Such a fun lookbook, a heart warming read, and honestly a work of art in itself. Can't wait to send these as Christmas gifts!

I received my copy of Modern Mix over the weekend and promptly sat down with a glass of wine and read it cover to cover! Just like Eddie Ross the book is stylish, chic, funny and so down to earth. Few design books give you tips on how to style a room or a dinner table with great flair and on a budget.

Nobody can find flea market deals like Eddie and his partner Jaithan. The book gives you tips from apps for your iPhone to what brands to look for when you are at a flea market. I love this book and am promptly buying copies for everyone on my holiday shopping list. You should too!

What a beautiful book. I've been collecting fun treasures here on the West Coast for some time. Most go into a closet and are forgotten. This book showed me how to polish and spiffy them up. Then how to organize and group my few eclectic objects to make a statement. I find I can pick up the book after awhile and discover something I missed previously. Loved Eddie’s personal pictures and stories throughout the book. I bought two more to give as gifts.

Amazingly inventive and inspiring!! Eddie and his team have put together one of the most beautiful books. I am proud to display this in my home. Adding his personal and creative flair to an array of different items that are found in flea markets and thrift stores he teaches even the design challenged that you can create a beautifully modern space even on a budget.

I love that the book is "divided" into sections. Perhaps you don't care for Design, you must read one Section called Restore. These guys do a fabulous job on explaining what to do or NOT do with cleaning each type of material. My copy of Modern Mix is getting so much use I finally took off the book jacket. When my dear mother passed away, I had hundreds of boxes of sterling silver (flatware, candle sticks, plates?, every shape & size of serving & display ware) copper, brass, bone china, early American ceramics, crystal, cut glass -- you name it. I gently packed it up in acid free paper (learned that from MS or maybe Eddie wrote the article) and it all went to the attic (semi-cool). For fifteen plus years, until Modern Mix. Now it's Christmas morning every time I open a box! Thank you Eddie and Jaithan, my mom thanks you too.
