My only complaint with Selina and her photographer/stylists is the almost constant presence of clothes hanging on hangers (and they are usually lovely, padded hangers) hanging all over the place. I counted NINETEEN photos with garments hanging somewhere in a room. It seems to be done to enhance the photo, a vertical line, a splash of color (notice I don't say "a POP of color" --- I am totally overdosed on "POPS of color", as well as "Flour Sack Towel/Curtains/Material -- clichés.) to visually balance the scene. Understood, but who in their right mind would have all these things hanging all over the place, picking up dust and often blocking closet doors ?
Otherwise, I love this book !
Before buying this book, I read the reviews from other buyers and when I saw pictures from the book online I knew I just had to have it.
And I'm so glad I bought it! Being a big fan of Rachel Ashwell, I find this book even better than the Shabby Chic books. It has more colour and more diversity and the pictures are simply wonderful. This is a book - together with Selina Lake's other book Homespun Style - I will turn to time and time again for inspiration! Thank you Selina, I love it!!
Even accounting for the various styles, I found this book very disappointing. It just seemed like it wasn't worth the money or the time. I usually love decorating books and was sorry to see the one I chose was not one I loved.
