3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but a repeat for House Beautiful avid readers 9 Dec. 2007
By Rozarooni - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I would have given this book five stars...had it not been the first time I'd seen the material contained within it's cover. You see, I own several House Beautiful books that focus on decorating small homes/rooms. Unfortunately, MANY of the ideas in the book had beeen seen before in House Beautiful's other small-home decorating volumes and magazines. Alas, I felt as if I was re-reading a book that I'd JUST purchased!

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Details in Decorating 23 Jan. 2014
By L. M. Keefer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's the details which make a room come alive, and this book takes attractive rooms which have been featured in HOUSE BEAUTIFUL and discusses the details in the design. Although I had seen most of the rooms before, if you don't subscribe to the magazine, or want further insight on the details of decorating, this may be a five star book for you. When I teach classes on design, details is a topic students want to know more about.
