Like another book -- The Collected Home, this was an enjoyable book. Actually spotted it on the desk in one of the Tour of Homes in Blowing Rock. Based on the title and beauty of the home we were in, I bought the book. It is more of a picture book than a reading book; that is what I wanted. Like the Collected Home, while reading this book I started jumping up and moving items already in the mix in our home decor. I have seven bookmarks to follow up on! So my review is -- the book was inspiring.

One word: breathtaking. As an inveterate magazine-aholic, I have been clipping pictures of Bobby McAlpine's houses for years. I didn't realize the fact at first, but I came to recognize the purity of his style, and as I went back through some of my favorite houses, there was his name as architect. If you love a house with a sense of timelessness and romance, then you'd love his work. His homes often look like they could have been around for centuries, and favor an English or Scottish heritage. ...more

Recommends it for: anyone who likes architecture & design & who dreams!
Lots of talent present in this book. Mr. McAlpine is extremely gifted as he gets to know his clients to discover "The Home Within" them. I think anyone who dreams has a home within her/him. I know I have one. It would be great fun to meet Mr. McAlpine and just start talking and see how he would find "my home within". I guess that I will just keep dreaming. Ms Sully definitely has the eye of a photographer as is shown in this book. Together these talented artists have produced a beautiful book !
