Beautiful interior deco book. Helped me combine collections from my travels with new ideas in an old house. Really helpful in restoring splendour to home with a dash of creativity. Thanks!

This lavish book is pack full of pictures with the usual tashcen mark of quality (if you are wondering what I mean by this Taschen is a publishing house that produces books with stunning photographs). The price is so high you have to be seriously interested in design to purchase these but boy are they worth it. If you can’t afford to buy then go and drool over them in a good library. The variety of houses, styles and interiors are wonderful. I was surprised at how much wood was used to beautiful effect in many. Some of the interiors feel completely unlived in but on certain ones I was stopped as if I had a view into someone’s private world – some noir, some intense, some quirky, some ritzy – they almost made me want to write a story about who lived there and what they did. It certainly delivers on inspiration
