Format: Hardcover
It is rare for me to browse a decorating book and not fine something that I just love. The title of this book grabbed my interest, but I was not expecting the intro to qualify the content as being geared towards frugality. Even so, I thought I'd find inspired designs for a not-so-upscale lifestyle. Instead, the book shows homes with features (views of central park, 20 foot ceilings, large stone fireplaces) few of us can afford, with advice that is same old same old. It does not take a genius to know that you can pick coordinated colors off of the same paint sample card, or that scale matters, and carpet can be the cheapest way to hide a bad floor.

Most of the ideas in this book published in 2011, can be found (with more inspiring examples) in older discount books dating back more than 5 -10 years ago. The rooms shown in this book aren't even decorated in such a way that I would aspire to achieve for my home. Of course, everyone has their own taste, but this book comes off as amateurish. Don't waste your money - even if you can afford the central park view.

This book is all about comfortable, casual and stylish English interiors. It is very well structured, with different topics to help you achieve a successful mix of antiques, vintage and modern. The text is well written and the photos most inspiring. I own a few books on interiors, homes etc. and this is by far my favorite.
