Very Deceiving, Waste of Money
on May 24, 2014
I'm an aspiring Interior Designer and the reason for me purchasing this book was the title, "THE LANGUAGE OF INTERIOR DESIGNING". However, I am very disappointed. First of all the photos are very traditional showing a lot of Victorian styles of the nineteenth century. There is very little modern or contemporary styles in this book. Another point to note is that the colours of the photos reflect a lot of Browns, Greys and Blue tones. Hence, it becomes very difficult for one to define contrast of colour, texture and even lighting in this book.
Finally, I consider the information to be very bias since the author only gives examples and information relating to her designs with very little information about Interior Designing. Her language on the other hand does not relate to the common reader, you must have a Dictionary in hand to understand what she is talking about.
I would not recommend this book to anyone unless the above points are not in your interest.
If anyone wants to learn about Interior Designing, you should purchase Home Decor - A Sunset Design Guide.
