That is the essence of Danny Seo's Conscious Style philosophy. As a leading environmentalist, Seo believes it doesn't take much time, effort or money to make a difference in the world. It's the small choices we make everyday-from what we wear to what we furnish our homes with-that have a tremendous impact. In this gorgeously illustrated book, Seo describes hundreds of uniq ...more

This sounds shallow, but this book really needed more color pictures. I don't expect to pick up a modern book about the home and see a lot of black and white photos. Maybe black and white photos are more green? I don't care - color photos simply hold my interest better.

Also, wouldn't it be more green to keep you house outdated and ugly rather than replace everything with green, but nonetheless NEW, components? Of course, if you have to replace things, by all means go green. But let's face it -

I'm going to admit that I wanted more from this book. It needed either a better layout or more color pictures, which I'm assuming were kept to a minimum to be "eco" by not using so many dyes.

I've had this book for a few years, but only really started reading it today. I think it's quite fitting that I bought a book about the Conscious Style philosophy at a second-hand book store.
