Format: Paperback
I have been waiting for this book ever since I read House Beautiful Blue, also by Lisa Cregan. Lisa's eye is so good and selective. This book helps you figure out how to achieve the effect that you want in all dimensions: color, scale, style and texture. It's also so refreshing to read decorating language that is evocative but not florid. This is the kind of book I wish I'd had for the last 4 homes I've decorated on my own!

The book is mostly photographs. It is inspiring and can stimulate your thinking about design and decor. It is not heavy on details. You won't be able to find all of the products or even know where they come from. But as an offline visual stimulant for home design it hits the spot.

Tiny book, I really hated this about the book because you don't get to see the rooms on a larger scale. Also there wasn't anything really great about the decor. Many of the images I've already seen online. The designers commentary was just Ok, kinda fell short of anything very interesting or fresh.
It's an older book so I guess it's expected not to be up to date on current trends. I only paid $3.00 for it so not really a loss just disappointing because I was hoping to find some goodies in there.

A bit derivative from HB's larger decor books, re-using similar photos, but nice small reference book for inspiration! Up to usual HB standards.
