I just did not get it. Take a moment to look at my review...I flip through the pages. Form your own opinion by watching the video :)

Your video review is so helpful, thank you! Living overseas I hate to order books that take for ever to get here and then have a huge let-down when I open the book and it's not what I thought it was.

I don't really get your review. You say in your video that you are a stay-at-home mom who enjoys Pottery Barn and Home Goods, and that you read the Apartment Therapy web site daily. DOES NOT COMPUTE. The aesthetic sense of a person who reads AT (with its focus on Ikea and mid-century modern) does not match up with a person who shops at PB and HG. What is it about the AT web site that you like so much? And was that not well represented in the book?

First of all, I am allowed to not match. My latest love from the AT web site: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/la/beach-
Secondly, reviews are subjective. What I love, you will hate etc. I respect individual taste. So when I post a review that is not positive, I try to explain a little about myself so the reader can form their own opinion. Also, I go to a lot of trouble to video tape the book to give any potential buyer/reader the ultimate review.
Finally, if you don't like my review, then leave your own. I would love to read your thoughts on the book.

I flipped through the book at Barnes & Noble and liked what I saw. Came to Amazon to read reviews and decide if I wanted to plunk down the cash for this book. However, I see that the earlier AT book got much better reviews. So maybe I'll get that one instead.

Thank you so much for doing this review. Furthermore, I must concur on your assessment given the video. I must not "COMPUTE" either for much like yourself, I am an ardent admirer of both AT AND PB. Perhaps that makes us both only Half-Hipsters!

Amazing review! You are so direct and right-to-the-point. Thanks for making me save $ on this obvious book.
