The book is for the coffee table so consequently has lovely large pictures. Perfect for showing up details in the many gorgeous homes featured.
It is divided into five sections: Period Piece, Urban Chic, Rustic, Recycled Spaces and Country House. Each of these has between four and six houses featured, as well as features on 'Furniture and Lighting' and 'Fabric and Finishing Touches'. All features are excellent.
The areas picked out cover all aspects of Modern Country excellently - from the traditional cottage through to converted warehouses and penthouse luxury.
It is reeeeeally lovely but doesn't quite reach the exalted spot for me. Some of the houses featured are too grand to get any real inspiration from (antique kitchen, anybody?). Drooling, though?.....Oh yes!

My advice, look through some magazines or browse the interior photos of similar properties to your own that you can find listed on estate agents websites. It's a lot cheaper than paying for the hit-and-miss interior design books that are supposedly "good".
