Totally not what I expected. Lovely pictures from circa 1990's Country Living magazine. (Sorry have just read the book leaf and am shocked to see that this book was produced in 2004!) Nothing new and sadly not inspiring! A disappointment if you are expecting some fabulous new ideas. Most of the suggestions consist of buying a tin of paint.
My suggestion is to save the cost of the book and buy a good homes magazine or look at the internet
This is a lovely and inspirational book with beautiful pictures and just the thing for curling up by the fire of a winter's evening. The ideas are easy and cheap or free to put into practice and are living proof that flair and skill are more important in an interior than money.
