This is so not what I read, because I have no decorating talent. Still I found myself mesmerized by the possibilities of old things and by the philosophy of appreciating the soul of used furniture, textiles, and dishes. The pictures included lofts and apartments in Europe and settings for al fresco dining. There was a list of sources and antique shops in America. This book is lots of fun.

Yawn. That's about all I can say. If you read interior magazines and even a few decor blogs, this book is redundant. It is also poorly designed and far too busy. Gotta give this one a thumbs down. There were a few really nice pictures every few page or so, but the reader was so distracted by all the random small images crammed onto each page. It might have worked if this had been a big over-sized tome, but it was actually a smallish book. Unimpressive.
