This book was a spontaneous grab at the library recently, but I ended up rereading it so many times that I purchased my own copy. The layout was so accessible--really stunning photos accompanied by a page or two of text from a master designer--so it was easy to enjoy a bit at a time. Despite not being myself one of the well-heeled homeowners featured in the book, I still found the layouts and descriptions inspiring, and could use them to guide my efforts in my own more modest home. I think the best part of this book was the instant joy I felt as I turned certain pages...I learned a lot about what I instinctively like and don''t like, and it made me happy just reading about the thought and feeling behind the rooms featured. Unlike some other design books I''ve read which are more explicitly instructional, this is one to linger over and absorb from slowly. Highly recommended!

Beautiful photographs. Beautiful writing. Too-small type. Too small print for even your average person or person with very good vision -- maybe 9.5? I have pretty good vision but definitely need magnifying reading glasses to read this. I suppose the book would have been twice as big and twice as expensive to allow for all the additional paper they''d need to make the print a nice size, but consider this factor before you buy.

Totally worth the price —even if you only read the first fifteen pages. Don’t skip a word. The designers offer useful insight into their design processes, far beyond the now overplayed I-love-to-travel-and-look-at-new-places. There is actual detail about the thought process that translates visual experience and research into site history into solutions for current design projects. The writing is excellent. The examples are very useful as illustrations of the principles being addressed, e.g., authenticity, negative space, history, etc. One of the most useful books on design for the non-professional, but very interested, lay person that I have encountered. Special kudos to the superb editor!

I love everything interior design because I want to learn about it. This book is not a particular how-to book (as in how to decorate in Shabby chic, French formal, or Tuscany, etc.); rather it is divided into essays by different designers who each tackle a concept in design. It is really helpful to give a name to a vague feeling I''ve been dissatisfied about in my design or to understand why I really did something well, or to understand how I could improve a space.
Highly, highly recommend.

Great the first few times
Reviewed in the United States on June 13, 2019
It is a wonderful coffee table book. It is divine to look at but the type was small and was just a distraction from the gorgeous pictures. I did like the headlines such as "confidence", "style", "creativity" and "elegance" for each picture.

The book presents insteresting views on different design topics, but as short essays from different designers, so if you expect something different, this book is not going to provide it.
