I consider Charlotte Moss's decorating ideas classic, lasting and always in good taste. Her suggestions are clever without being trendy and can enhance any traditional interior. There are many books which provide ideas for winter holiday decors, yet few-- like this one-- which feature general ideas to add winter cheer. I am reading the book during the January 2016 "blizzard" and it helps me to continue to enjoy the snugness and beauty of the winter season-- despite the inconveniences. The beautiful illustrations provide ideas for decorating every room of the house. Moss explains in detail what inspired her to do each room.
The only down-side for me is that the house she decorated is located in western ski country. Thus, some of the ideas are regional. But, on the whole, the suggestions will apply to any home.
When it arrived the book itself was in splendid condition. It was pretty, with lots of illustrations and these profuse in their detail, with good colors. However, the book itself was a disappointment.
The text seemed to repeat itself a lot, its raison d'etre was flimsy, its cohereence and finish were weak. We don't expect a book on decor to be too serious on thought, or even to hold out very many "ideas"; or at least, I don't. But I do want a focus of some sort,and to hear a few things that are fresh. There needs to be something more than "spend a lot of money."
If Miss Moss was not original,there was one feature to her book which I enjoyed. She is an heiress of sorts: her southern grandmother worked professionally in table textiles and tableware for many years and established a tradition of Sunday afternoon brunches at her home displaying quality table presentations and every sort of table detail.Charlotte Moss learned it all as a child. Now, in addition to the things handed down to her, she collects table textiles. Her love of fine tableware, good textiles, and lovely professional flower arrangements all come across in her book and enrich it. It is contagious. That part of "Winter House" I enjoyed, while overall, I DO consider the book a disappointment.
