5.0 out of 5 stars from a decorator, December 2, 2011
This review is from: The Perfectly Imperfect Home: How to Decorate and Live Well (Hardcover)
There is a ton of warmth, humor, and brilliant advice about both living and decorating to be found in this book. It isn't preachy or static - perhaps due to Deborah's candid and conversational tone. She's a great writer, so even though each page feels as though she's sitting in a chair sharing her thoughts quite casually, don't expect a bunch of flippant chat. This clearly comes from her heart and personal experience while it weaves in the pragmatism of a working mother, gracious hostess, and the critical eye of one of the design industry's top editors. The concepts she describes are illustrated by charming watercolor renderings which allows you to take the advice she gives in an emotional context, rather than literal. It is really refreshing and inspiring. I don't normally write reviews and am struck with the urge to because this book is exceptional! Soon to be a gift to everyone on my design team.
