When it arrived the book itself was in splendid condition. It was pretty, with lots of illustrations and these profuse in their detail, with good colors. However, the book itself was a disappointment.
The text seemed to repeat itself a lot, its raison d'etre was flimsy, its cohereence and finish were weak. We don't expect a book on decor to be too serious on thought, or even to hold out very many "ideas"; or at least, I don't. But I do want a focus of some sort,and to hear a few things that are fresh. There needs to be something more than "spend a lot of money."
If Miss Moss was not original,there was one feature to her book which I enjoyed. She is an heiress of sorts: her southern grandmother worked professionally in table textiles and tableware for many years and established a tradition of Sunday afternoon brunches at her home displaying quality table presentations and every sort of table detail.Charlotte Moss learned it all as a child. Now, in addition to the things handed down to her, she collects table textiles. Her love of fine tableware, good textiles, and lovely professional flower arrangements all come across in her book and enrich it. It is contagious. That part of "Winter House" I enjoyed, while overall, I DO consider the book a disappointment.
This is worth buying but you sort of get a wierd sense of..."its all about MEEEEE" from the author. Sorry, but it makes me laugh a bit.
At a loss for words. Beautiful but boring. Old school that doesn't bring anything new to the table (or the myriad of tables). It'll be on the sale rack soon. If you know people that like this kind of stilted matchy-matchy interior design work, then get it for them. Otherwise it's a snore.
