To some degree, especially when its photographs focus on small portions of rooms, this book calls to mind the popular "It's the Little Things," while full-room shots are more reminiscent of the recently-published "Haute Bohemians." However, here the decors in "The Maverick Soul" are less studied and polished. These homes and the essays that celebrate the eccentrics who populate the book will inspire and affirm those in your life who are blessed with an exceptional quotient of curiosity and originality.
Just ordered another one so can underline passages of her writing,descriptions to muse over.
Live long,be well,thank you so much Ms. Watts.
And for those who don't get it,please move along.
Myself, I love eccentric and quirky interior design and I wholeheartedly subscribe to the "if you love it, have it/buy it/show it" philosophy. But it's also a very fine line and a slippery-slope into junk shop territory. Not everyone can pull off the eccentric, quirky, high/low design aesthetic Lorraine Kirke can (and "Would You Like To See The House?" is a favorite book).
I was really disheartened by this book in general. Maybe if you are fans of the people featured, perhaps you'll appreciate it. Or maybe you will suddenly wish you didn't see your idols homes and how they live. For me, it's more of a "I can't unsee it now" experience that I will forever associate with the more well-known people in the book. And as this book is too big, heavy and not worth the cost and trouble to return, I'll either donate it to my local library or hold on to it until I meet the right person to gift it to in the future.
Here is love and imperfection, an eye for the unexpected and detailed aspects of our world.
