I purchased several design books this year, and this is by far the best. The style of Inspired Interiors is fresh, classic, timeless and never stuffy or overdone. The commentary is very easy-to-read, and offers straightforward, pragmatic advice. Whether you are looking for a gift, or want a good guide for yourself that looks lovely on the coffee table, you can't go wrong with this book.

I would recommend this one, especially if you have a transitional style of decorating. Very glamorous rooms with a good balance of femininity and splashes of color mixed with neutral tones.

I've been a fan of Suzanne Kasler for years. Her work is polished and refined, yet casual, relaxed and effortless. I had the privilage of working with her as a rep when I managed a trade-only showroom in Atlanta. She has phenomenal taste and her style is unique. Her work is definitely worthy of it's own book. Great job Suzanne, you've always inspired me!

I bought this book shortly after buying a home that needed to be decorated. I found that it contained a lot of great ideas that could be incorporated into any budget with a little imagination. To be clear, if you want to exactly mimic what she is doing, then you better have a fat wallet. But, for most of us, the book is still very useful for seeing what is possible with an unlimited budget, and then working our way down from there.

There is one picture in the middle of the book that looks as though it was taken with a camera phone, but the majority of the pictures are beautiful. And of course, since Kasler's designs so frequently include decorative books, the book is designed in such a way that it would fit right in with her rooms.

Each room has a little blurb from the designer about what she was thinking, with some general principles that she follows. The writing sounds self-important and self-indulgent, but the ideas that she attempts to put forward are worth hearing out. All in all, a book worth getting.

While the cover is nice, I felt I wasted my money on this book - twice (I purchased it twice by mistake). Kasler's rooms do nothing for me. She doesn't use contrast of either value (dark and light) or tone or hue (color). Most of her rooms are an amorphous glob of one value and one hue, which is particularly unpleasant. She isolates chairs by themselves with no table nearby and no lamps of any kind - making the seating useless for anything. Or she has entire living room seating areas without any lighting. Basically, she gathers items other people designed into a grouping that's unusable for actual living and it's not even pleasant to be in. Her rooms are often painted the same color on ceilings, walls and woodwork. There are a few exceptions and the cover image is one of them - it does use contrast although you can see her monochrome walls, woodwork and ceilings. I did like her choice of wall art - she uses a lot of framed drawings which gives a low presence to the artwork. That's all I liked. Her furniture was uncomfortable.

If you are rethinking your home decor or planning to build or remodel, this is an excellent book. Systematically covers such things as color, paint, how to hang paintings to best advantage, focal points. Less text, more fine illustrative photographs of real homes. Kaslet's style is what I would call Ecletic American, drawing upon various European styles as well as simpler American traditions. Beautiful book, and it won't grow dated. I highly recommend.

I have many many design books in my library but of all of them this is the best. Great pictures. Great taste. It's not one room that you like, it's every room.

I have purchsed many design books over the past year and a half and this is by far one of my favorites. Ms. Kasler really masters transitional style and you can get snippets of ideas to take away and use in your home. She blends very traditional furniture with newer, modern elements to make a combined and updated space. I found the book to have a nice combination of advice with photos; sometimes design books are too photo-heavy or read like a textbook. I use it as reference and also as a lovely coffee table book. If you are a regular person who likes an elegant design book to infuse your home with touches of beauty, this is a good reference and an inspiration point.
