To me, this book is one big sonnet about the joy of tapping into your imagination and making your ideas a reality in your home. If she is willing to pick up a paint brush to create a piece of art inspired by one of her favorite artists, or have an artist embroider an eyelash onto a sofa arm as a gentle nod to the unseen world and mystery that existed in her childhood imagination, then why can't the rest of us be a little daring in how we design our home? Really, truly wonderful. I am inspired by, and appreciate, so many interior designers. I can say the same for Beata, but after reading her book and gaining some insight into her mind and heart, I also want to be her friend! :)

Even if Heuman's style isn't your ideal, what matters and why this book is of utmost value is that it is a masterclass in design personality. Too often modern design is obsessed with the tasteful, which often imparts a feeling of desperation for elite approval that seems entirely lacking of taste to begin with. Heuman's clients clearly are comfortable, but their money is not the point for them, their lives are (unlike in the rampant oh-so-minimalistic-we-are-very-wealthy-but-will-only-show-you-that-with-our-giant-floor-to-ceiling-windows-and-one-italian-sofa "family homes" that lazy architect-designers have been getting away with. Minimalism can be beautiful, but it has become a crutch that is used synonymously with "taste" - that only leads to the death of personality within design). Hueman's designs emphasize the organic, and what an inspiring site it is to see curvature used so well and relevantly!
If you need some reinvigoration of your design perspective, this book is it. There is so much to be extrapolated from its pages, even philosophically let alone from it's pleasing aesthetics (the linen binding and wallpaper backing to the covers is quite a delight), that it is truly something only a book can deliver. I don't generally review items on Amazon, but considering how often I have referenced this book I felt it was the least I could do.
To all future owners of it, enjoy. And to Beata Heuman, thank you.
