Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Although the photographs are indeed lovely and some of the suggestions practical and quite useful, ultimately you need to SEE this book at a bookstore in order to give it a quick once-through to be certain that you don't already have the images and information other similiar books by House Beautiful have contained. Several of the pictures looked familiar and sure enough...when I checked, they were indeed duplicates from previous works.
Essentially, if you don't already own a book of this fashion, it's a fabulous purchase that will be sure not to disappoint you, but check and re-check it's pages at your local bookstore if you are a regular House Beautiful customer.
