The people at Romantic Homes have certainly done it again. This is another beautiful book! My only complaint would be that it is a compilation of past magazine articles/pictures rather than entirely new material. But, overall it delivers.

Great photography but lay out is very similar to Vintage Vavoom with some duplication of photos.
Expected to see more emphasis on vintage china.

This is an absolutely lovely book, gorgeous photographs, elegant and well designed tablesettings. It is sort of a guidebook on how to create your own style and settings in a diary/scrapbook. As a huge fan of "Romantic Homes" magazine, I was really looking forward to seeing this.

The only disappointment is that there is no identification of the different brands of vintage china, silver and crystal used, especially important to me as a collector. That is what I was hoping to find out more about in the book. Glad the library got it for me instead of me paying for it, just for that reason.

If you are looking for a style how to book, this is the one for you. If you are looking for information on vintage collectibles, its not.

THE VINTAGE TABLE: PERSONAL TREASURES AND STANDOUT SETTINGS offers insights into table settings and mixing and matching vintage and modern pieces to fine effect. Unlike most antiques guides to glassware, this doesn't assume only antiques or an unlimited budget: it shows how to make the most of a few fine pieces and comes packed with color photo examples for pairing family china and newer finds. A top pick for any general lending library.

This book has such gorgeous photographs! Although I lead a much simpler lifestyle than the one pictured in the book, I found it to be inspiring. The settings are beautiful, and the book gives me great ideas on what to look for the next time I go to an antique store. Not only that, but the book has given me great ideas on how to display what I already have. Ideas for creating vignettes and displays are on every page, and those ideas help me create my own displays. Also what's nice is how the book shows me color combinations that I would not have come up with on my own. I have found the book to be beautiful to look at, inspiring to ponder, and full of good ideas on how to make the most of my existing vintage articles.

Nice pictures,read thru once and put it in the "library" for reference. I was disappointed and guess I expected more. Not enough on normal old dishware. This is for a serious collector of vintage china. I am a serious collector and there was not enough "meat" for me. This is what I call a "fluff" book.
