My best interior design book so far.
Unlike most books published on the subject of architecture, interiors, decoration or design, ST's books are extremely well written and full of useful and useable practical information and advice.
In addition, the illustrations and pictures perfectly compliment the always excellent text and are 'real' enough to make the reader feel they could create similar settings and interiors.
ST is an 'edgy' realistic and uncompromising writer who thoroughly understands her subject - unlike many other authors working in this genre.
I have bought every one of ST's books and thoroughly recomend them to any reader interested in this subject. They are excellnet value for money and will not dissapoint.
