5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!, January 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I do not like writing reviews.But I love this book very much and must tell the world! The photography is first rate and the notes and ideas are masterclass in interior design.
This book tells you how to add character and color to your interiors using your collections. And for those who are unsure of what to buy to add the WOW factor to their home, this book will give you lots of ideas.
I especially like their web-links, for those who want to know more than the superficial.
Even if you are into the minimalist decor, i bet you will find inspiration from the very original photos and ideas.
If you are undecided to buy, then hear, hear!
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful ! Love it, December 15, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a beautiful book and has lots of fabulous photos and ideas. Its decorating master-class reflecting the personality of Mr Yeoward. I know there are lots of his things on display but the book is not a catalog of his wares. I like his interiors which are never over-the-top and impractical.Rooms are serene and beautiful (look at the fabric he uses ) but also fuctional where you can bring the kids and dogs in. Finally I was touched by his acknowledgement of his partner Collin. Such honesty. For the undecided- this is a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super! A Great book, October 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Cuba is so far away. I'm totally ignorant of Cuba other than Fidel Castro. So this book is trully enlightening eventhough its slant is mainly about Cuban furniture. The photos are clear and beautiful and the text erudite. Much research was done and it shows. Its a book worth buying if you are into history/interior design/antique. Even if you're not, its a good read.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: American Modern (Hardcover)
I like this book. Peaceful,calm and fresh interiors. For those who are not into interiors that are cluttered with swags of fabrics and patterns, this is for you. I enjoyed the clear photos and the succint write-up. No regrets buying!

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice cover but inside is a disappointment!, October 5, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
What a disappointment! Some of the photos are grainy and old and the write-ups are way too long. Most of the style appears dated, as if I was browsing an old Architectural Digest or Elle Decoration magazine. As a matter of fact, some of the homes eg. the Krakoff's house was published in Elle Decor mag about 4 years ago.
The last section- The Glorious Getaways was like a rush job.
House and Garden magazine (UK) does a better job especially their Insider Lifestyle section.
Given a chance,if I had the opportunity to browse this book, I would not have bought it but rather put my money on a subcription of either House and Garden or The World of Interiors magazine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but..., July 18, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A beautiful book..Wonderful to be able to peep into their private rooms and see how the wealthy reside. I prefer Pierre Berge's taste, his is less sombre. The one shown on the front cover is divine.
However I wished there were more photos of the external part of these beautiful houses and photos of the parties and celebrations when the houses were lived in.
(It was interesting to spot some flea market stuff mixed with the silver and antiques! and
phones in every room )
Unfortunately, with so much art and beauty it overwhelms and smothers rather than uplifts.I felt jaded and sad before the end of the book.

This review is from: Lalanne(s) (Hardcover)
What a beautiful book. I am a fan of the Lalanne(s) and its such a pleasure to finally to be able to examine and admire their wonderful artwork in such detail.The photos are huge and crisp. I wish the caption were more informative and also explain the ideas that inspired the artists.
