This is a very decent book. Most, if not all, of the pictures are beautiful and tasteful and inspiring. The writing is fine, fairly sensible and not over-the-top. The patterns are not completely satisfying, but they are far better than what I've seen in many other books.

I'd recommend this book highly for an inspiring browse, but otherwise it is of limited value.

At auctions vintage fabric fetches big bucks. And its easy to see why. There is an obvious appeal to age-softened, faded cloth. This book is a style guide to using these pieces. Ideas, examples, and inspiration abound. Although, there is nothing shockingly new here, the book is lovely and highly recommended to anyone who enjoys dercorating books.
