Poor Ros ... she was on to a winner with her early books, then there was the embarrassment of the gushing Farrow and Ball tomes ... but she's just doing her best. I bought this book because the Peter Winwood (cover) is still great, although I think I've now seen so many photos I have to remind myself I've never actually lived there A couple of the other homes did ring eccentrically ... but if you want something bolder and more rewarding (and I have no connection to anyone associated with it) check out Eccentric Homes - Belgian interiors which, to me, perfectly express eccentricity (without some of the awful messes The World of Interiors 1980s book included). I'm sure Ros will be back to bat and i hope next time she has more support from her material.

The format and the paper are great. Regarding the interiors, some are very interesting and different to anything I seen before. But some are very well known and two appeared in the 'Grand Designs' show. I would agree that there one or two that are less interesting. Overall I am happy that I got this book and I won't be returning it.

Some I had seen before, many well known not included, some new ones which I didn't find eccentric at all, but
I suspect were included to attract the current interior fashion. Normally I'm very fond of Ros Byam Shaws books but this one was a bit disapointing.

A greatly disappointing book. Many photographs of a less than average selection of interiors. Weak, and unimaginative.
Going to return this book!
