This book is a fantastic change to the near perfection look magazines try to achieve- we just finished a renovation and have had lots of professional photographers in - they clear all semblances of real living- I'm not so envious of the perfect magazine look anymore- it isn't really like that. This book feels natural, as if you've stumbled into their environment- it will certainly not be to everyone's taste but that would be missing the point. Its inspirational and creative and comfortable. I just wished I knew those designer's work a little better and it would have been nice to also have a small picture section of their designs (as opposed to individually googling them). Would love to see the same theme in other countries.
