4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Inspiring 4 July 2003
I found this book wonderful and would recommend it to anyone intrested in interiors. The pictures used are facinating, varied and very inspiring. They really fired my imagination! This is the type of book that someone can flick through a thousand times and always spot something new.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 11 May 2010
This book features a great number of beautiful pictures of the London Style. Various styles are featured and you get a great look into creative and differently decorated homes - more detail pictures would have been great (just because I love them!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent showcase of London interiors 17 Jan 2002
By "napraforgo" - Published on
This book is an excellent viewbook if you want to get a taste of contemporary London interiors. It has very modern, a bit more classic and very simple interiors as well. There is very little text in the book, but the photos are all full page and very well made, high quality. A fun book to flip through and get inspiration from!

5.0 out of 5 stars well worth it... 10 Nov 2004
By nonpareil - Published on
Artsy black & white pics show London street scenes in the first (small) section. Then the large sections of excellent color photography illustrate a variety of interiors, then decorating details.

Most of the space is given to the pictorial, as befits a book on how things look; what little trilingual (English-French-German) text exists is poetically descriptive.

Styles represented tend toward the spare and eclectic - we're not talking about conspicuous consumption or Martha wannabes here - probably "urban bohemian" is the general trend. Architectural details are proudly and blatantly incorporated into the overall scheme of things... It's a work well worth inclusion in your library.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, not bad either 9 Oct 2009
By E. Richter - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I guess what disappointed me most about this book (besides the size, which I expected) is that I've seen the interiors in other books before. Discovering that, I thought a) I have better, more detailed books with the same photographs and b) Taschen is usually better than this. The book has almost no descriptions and relies on tiny print in the back saying things like "detail of_______'s interior." At least in other books, their descriptions tell you about the objects- how they were acquired, etc- not just describing the obvious. All in all, yes, the pictures are nice but it's not a necessity for my library.
5.0 out of 5 stars bought for a gift 23 Sep 2013

Bought as a holiday gift for my travel partner after our trip to London. Gorgeous photography. She keeps it out on her coffee table and loves it (although it's smaller than I imagined - only about 8" x 5" - so if you're envisioning a larger coffee table book, this isn't it - but the quality of the photos are magnificent. Gorgeous London interiors give inspiration and aesthetic value - anglophile or not.
