3.0 out of 5 stars Great source of inspiration, 24 Mar. 2011
I love Kelly Hoppen's style so I just had to have this book !

This book if full of beautiful interiors, as expected. After an introduction on key elements (texture, shape, materials, colour and display) and how to plan your space (layout, lighting design, mood boards and finishes for walls, ceilings and floors), an easy to follow 'room by room' structure follows. It includes lots of straightforward advice with 'Checklists' and 'Kelly loves....' for each room. I love the fact that in this book, unlike in previous books, next to each photograph there is a mention of where different furniture, lighting, etc have been sourced from, which is useful to know, if you have the budget of course !

However, about a third of the way you start realising that the same interiors and the same photographs, but viewed from different angles, have been used throughout the book to highlight different points. I was fairly disappointed because of this as I was certainly expecting to see a lot more variety of interiors.
