If you buy Coastal living beach house style you will see that almost 75% of the photos are the same ones in their Coastal living Our best makeovers magazine 2010.
I was so disappointed that so many of the photos were the same. I have a lot of old Coastal living issues and there were so many other photos they could have used. Maybe next time they will use some new material and not the same old photos just in a new book.

If you're looking for an overview of different signature beach house styles, this book is a good place to start. It surveys the most popular beach styles which are influenced by geography: the bold navy, whites and reds of New England, soft sand and blue tones in Seaside Florida, hot pinks, yellows and preppy greens in Key West Style, the Spanish/Mexican influences of Southern California, the moody-murky deeper tones of the Pacific Northwest and the tropical brights of the Caribbean.

The book takes you room-by-room beginning with living rooms, and includes bedrooms, kitchens, baths and porches illustrating the possibilities and variations of beach decor. My favorite feature of this book is the "elements of style" page for each kind of room which shows common elements used. Different pieces are highlighted to demonstrate how a look can be put together for a particular room from chairs to side tables, to rugs, to fabric to accessories like lanterns.

There were some rooms I loved, but others didn't look particularly "beachy" to me such as a Moroccan-influenced bedroom, a neo-classic master bedroom, and a lavender and green guest room which looked more farmhouse country to me. The most successful, and attractive, rooms in the book I thought brought more of the outdoors in and looked more "beachy". I don't subscribe to COASTAL LIVING magazine, although occasionally look at it at Barnes & Noble, and all of the rooms were new to me. If you have a subscription, you may have seen the rooms before, and want to take that into consideration. This is a fun and affordable introduction to a casual, inviting and comfortable vacation style which many want in our homes.

This book has a lot of beautiful pictures although most are split 3/4 across by the binding. If you receive Coastal Living magazine you may recognize most of featured houses. Great for a coffee table book or as a conversation piece for those of us who are landlocked. Overall.... for me this book was a bit of a let down.

Very disappointed with this publication. I have seen everything before in my subscription to Coastal Living magazine and in their previous yearly publications. Why did they not put in something new? Why nothing unique and different?

Most of the photos are recent from their publications. I am disappointed that, after only subscribing for one year, to see the same layouts, same photos and same text as in their magazine. Had I known this I would not have bought this edition.

Photos nice but nothing great. No mention of where to purchase anything seen in the photos and the styles could not be further from the truth. I know Key West all too well and the colors and description of our quirky island style do not capture the true beauty of our paradise.

This could have been so much more but the publishers didn't do the concept of Beach House justice. A lazy, sloppy effort by a publication that seems to lack direction and losing subscribers. I hate to say but Coastal Living magazine itself is going downhill too - I won't be renewing again. Sad.

There are much better books on the market to buy - avoid this one.

Repeat of what is found in past issues of the Coastal Living Magazine. Pictures are nice, as is the layout, but an overall disappointment. Was hoping for new design ideas and because I view the monthly magazine much of it was alredy viewed. Would not recommend.

i own many good decorating books, and while the pictures in this book are as beautiful as they appear in coastal living magazine, this book is what i call the lazy way of publishing- nothing more than a compilation of previously seen homes from the magazine and their special yearly summary publication. so if you already own all of those as i do, you are waisting your money on a repeat performance.

This books has lots of wonderful ideas for those of us along the coast. Most of us cannot redo houses or even rooms, but there are plenty of little touches to copy and make our own. Even after reading (and rereading), I still pick it up and receive motivation to update little details of my home.

I wasn't familiar with Coastal Living mag, so all these pics are new to me. I find it to be a very inspiring book if you're going after this look in your own home (or just dreaming about the beach!)
