If you are willing to (re)decorete your own house and you are not a professional in the matter and you have a classic taste, this book is very good for you for it has easy tips and all the basic information that you need.
If you are an interior designer like me, with some work experience (maybe 5 years or more) you might be quite disappointed. Kelly Hoppen uses a classical style, neutral colours, symetry and repetition of elements. This is basically the way to make a good looking classic decoration with no risk at all. But if you like to take risks in your works and play with colours and styles, you better look for something else...

My interiors pet peeve is overdecorating the bed. All those little cushions, perfectly fluffed in line like little velvet soldiers. What do you do when you want to sleep? Or, indeed, in the morning before work?
Rant aside, Kelly Hoppen has made her name with neutral colours, ornately dressed windows with bows and ribbons and those little cushions. Juxtaposing different textures is key.
This book showcases some very rich clients' homes. Or should I say home? It all looks the same. The idea for the book is 'concept to reality'. However, the 'reality' in question more how to decorate your mansion and the importance of a separate lighting designer (top tip: install sockets in the floor to avoid those unsightly wires) than useful ideas for the common folks.
I liked the idea that every room should have a star piece. One star added for that.

those some pictures were in other books, I adore the presentation and "browsability" of her books...as a professional it helps me present ideas to client when they cannot visualize so that we can bounce off of the pictures
