3.0 out of 5 stars I want to adore it...., 18 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Etcetera (Hardcover)
There are certain things I appreciate about this book, the photography is lovely and the style is very unique. I don't really think it can be described as an 'interior design' book though.

There are certain themes that are useful- using colours, making collections and finding inspiration in what you already own. However, many of the rooms are put together in such a way they make me want to reach in and tidy them up. There's A LOT of clutter and talk of 'collecting' in this book. I appreciate an artistic approach to organising a room and displaying your favourite objects, but could I actually live in any of these rooms? Maybe not.

Having said that. I do love the book as a glimpse into someone else's dream rooms, and I do find inspiration within these pages- I just don't think I'll be decorating my home with bird skulls and insects. Looking to nature for colour- inspiration is a nice idea and I do appreciate this book and I'm glad I own it. I think for me, it's more a lovely escapism, than real-life decorating.
