This book is a dream. Readers of this work will see many familar houses which have appeared in fine quality decoration magazines. The photographs are to die for! If you own a house on the coast or would like to own one this book is for you.

This is a nice book with pretty photos. I was looking for ideas I could use but these properties are so far outside my reality that it was pretty useless to me. I am going to pass it on to a friend. It was nice to look through once but not interested in looking again and again.
