The styles represented are fresh and vibrant; this book should appeal to folks who like modern, vintage, flea-market, DIY, urban, retro, cottage, rural, industrial, bohemian, global, mid-century, heirloom, Apartment Therapy, eclectic and any variation on these themes. These are real homes in which you can easily imagine folks living. It is fun to see designers Jonathan Adler & Simon Doonan's home and Vicente Wolf's loft in the mix. If you've ever wondered how one-room living and sleeping would be, Liz Bauer's NYC studio apartment in this book (and Billy Baldwin's from another book) are convincing that you can have a bed in your living room and still look stylish! Loved her space.
This book exceeded my expectations--didn't really know what to expect regarding how 1000 quality design ideas would fit in one book--and think it will be especially valuable to those who want their home to express them and their personal vision of a lively, lovable and livable space.
I also felt that many of these ideas were not feasible for people who are not homeowners (aka people who rent/lease). I know this was not touted as an apartment/rental living book, but it just seemed like you had to make some big changes in materials to achieve the design effects. There was also occasionally some noticeable overlap of information already stated in previous sections of the book (for example, that north-facing rooms look gray if they have white walls...I definitely read that 2-3 times).
But, I did really like the drawn blueprints and information about furniture placement was quite helpful. Most of the spaces shown, also, seem fairly livable, not stark and designer influenced like in many other shelter/home decor books. And although I don't like how it's presented, I do like that there is a lot of information, so you are getting a lot of bang for your buck.
I found new stuff, great tips and a visually soothing experience. The pictures are lovely and they provide great back-up to the informative content. Texts are very well written and effient, long enough to inspire but not too in-depth.
Buy this book if you are about to buy your own place, if you want to stick to rental but are looking for ways to personalize the spaces you live in.
But if you already have a house and/or have just finished decorating it, buy this book to treat yourself to some serious interior eye candy. To me, it's the equivalent of an ice-cream tub. Very very well done to Holly and her team.
