I've purchased many books from Amazon, and loved most of them. I've also purchased many Taschen Interiors series books and have always been impressed. This book is such a let down. There is no new material in this book, just reprints or different angles of shots that were already used in 'Seaside Interiors". The only text is in the beginning and reads like someones summer diary....overdramatic at that. This book is sized like a handbook, but with no material of any use to someone looking for 'Seaside Style' design ideas. I've made arrangements to return it.

having gotten into interior design books and magazines i was thrilled to find a treasure trove of interior design-themed books at amazon and preceded to order one right after another;usually with a visual preview of the chosen item.I added this particular book, seaside style ,to my wish list based on the cover ,assuming it featured interior ideas for beach side residences.I finally ordered the book,inspired by it's cover and wasn't expecting it to be a page after page pictorial of seaside locations;great photographs,color photographs,but little or no text describing each scene.You leaf through to the end of each series of photographs to a brief directory which will tell you where the photos are taken,but nothing else.This isn't an interior design book which for me makes the title of the book a bit misleading.

I love this little book. I picked up a copy of it from Old Navy and have enjoyed it ever since. The images are just amazing.

This author is entirely too pretentious. She clearly thinks "she's all that" and it shows in all of her books -- even more so in this one. I'm surprised there's a following -- probably won't last.
