Editorial Reviews

Review

"Serving as editor in chief of the interior design magazine Southern Accents gave Newsom the courage in 1987 to start Veranda, which began as a magazine for regional interiors and expanded to show homes throughout the world. Here Newsom presents houses and gardens that exemplify the best of her magazine. More than 200 color photographs depict lavish, primarily professionally designed interiors in styles from classic to modern with text explaining the designers' and residents' approaches. Although quite a few of the dwellings are located in the southern United States (as befits Veranda's origins), homes throughout the United States and Europe also are included. VERDICT: Newsom's collection of homes will appeal to those seeking inspiration for an extravagant living space." -- Library Journal

I have loved my subscription to Veranda and buy a lot from Wisteria as well (her son). The book is worth getting if your an interior design book lover like me. While the rooms are tasteful and well done, the monochromatic look is repeated page after page. While all design books show the designers strengths and preferences, I thought this one would be less so as it is a compilation of published homes / spaces. So - okay, I've got it - this is what she thinks a room should consistently look like no matter where it is in the world, or who the occupants are.

I was very glad to see Veranda FINALLY publish a book of their best. Still, there's so much more that is as good or better than what's in this book. I have been tearing out the best of Veranda and making my own Veranda book for years so it is good to now have a beautiful book I can display and one that adds to my decor. It is the only book on my coffee table right now.

The whole book has lots of two page layouts with very little words. Just what I want in a decorating book. Veranda has done a great job in recent years of giving us large beautiful pictures with a minimum of words. Because most of us buy decorating books for the beautiful pictures!

Thanks Veranda for giving us a treasure of your work and we look forward to many many more to come.

This was a disappointment, as my expectations had been to engross myself and revel in the gorgeous colors that the Veranda publications is famous for. Things are on the bland and dated side, mildly boring, and in general, just not exciting enough. Can't truly recommend this.

This is a beautiful "coffee table" type book. My only reservation about it is that most of the rooms are on the neutral side. I personally love COLOR and like to see colorful rooms. Still the homes are stunning!

This book had beautiful photographs but I found myself wanting more. I would love to see inside decor and outside facades of French homes. Thank you.

If you love the magazine, the book is an extension of the magazine. The magazine contains more "daring" or trendy styles. The book is a bit sanitized possibly to ensure it is timeless.

If you love Veranda, you'll love this book.

I looked so forward to receiving this book as Veranda is one of my favorite interiors magazines. No doubt a beautifully presented book with great pictures and interiors and a great cover. I loved it! A good mix of interior styles.
