4.0 out of 5 stars Great if you've got a period property 24 Jan 2006
Loads of pictures to inspire you, but many of them seem to have a similar theme. Neutrals with a few colourful accessories. Most of the properties featured are amazing period houses with huge high ceilings. The main thing lacking in this book is that it doesn't cover newer or smaller properties, and it doesn't show any examples of anything really original, individual or bizarre.
There's nothing in the way of advice in this book, it's purely about the photographs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Home Heaven 16 Jun 2009
Excellent book with just what you need for design inspiration - minimal text and maximum photographs. Yes, as the other reviewer pointed out the homes featured are all vast and no doubt beyond most of our budgets, but the point of the book is to feature homes with the "wow" factor, and I find it a very useful sourcebook for picking out ideas which you could apply to your own home.

If you're searching for a book with photos of your average home done up nicely then this isn't for you, but if you want inspiration from the most fabulous interiors then you can't go wrong with this book. Great photography, and covers a range of styles. I don't agree with the previous reviewer that this focuses on period style. Yes, a number of the homes featured are architecturally period houses, but the designs themselves are very current.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots and lots of photos to indulge yourself in 26 Jun 2009
By Sally Wilton VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The date is June 2009 and this book is highly up to date. Lots of very contemporary homes mainly designed by architects and interior designers with good examples of up to the minute ideas. The best thing about this book is the large number of photos with not too much written detail. Just enough so that you know the location and interesting architectural and design features. Since reading this book in June I have refurbished a Victorian House - I referred to this book constantly and although many of the products used in the book are high end luxurious I found that it raised the bar for me and I now have a really fabulous home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Resource 24 Feb 2013
By Coco
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You'd think it was easy to find lots of images / inspiration for home decor online, but I haven't found that to be the case. I bought this because the author / editor has a great eye for rooms and for detail. I've used it lots and the price was a far better investment than, say, four interior magazines.

3.0 out of 5 stars Style over substance 18 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very attractive books with lots of well taken photos showing off designs and themes of discerning home owners/designers. However the blurb accompanying each home is all too brief. Unfortuntely I found that I did not get a real understanding of each home's theme. In compensation the photos are very well taken and give you plenty of opportunity to think about design aspects to you project no matter or great or small.
