Inspirational! 6 July 2006
By Until Dawn - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"Beyond minimalism there is a more ornamental approach to modern interiors." This statement couldn't be more true and this book is a great guide on navigating the marriage of the contrasting styles. I've often felt that contemporary design was visually a work of art that was cold, but when one chooses the perfect peices it can lead to the most accurate embodiment of personal style.

Interesting photos, art is not always comfy living... 10 Jun. 2010
By Mcfynnan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Striking photographs of interiors, few would want to live inside. These are eclectic photos of intriguing items with no thought to function or comfort. For example, throwing a sofa, a huge piece of art and neon sign with nothing else and a house full of such rooms implies the rooms are for a gallery and not for living, sleeping, working or interacting. These are not added to with any advice for decorating or informative data about the items either. For instance, I love a chair inside but it's described as "antique chair". How is that going to help me find one like it? This is a coffee table book, not a how-to book at all.
