Diana's rating: 4 stars

I was drawn to pick up this book, as it is a new decorating
book in our collection, and it had a really bright fun room
on the cover. In a way, I didn't want to like it because of
the incredibly hip and smug-looking couple shown, and their
equally hip-looking seven children. I kid you not. This couple
has a successful design business and show on HGTV, and seven
children. But back to the book. It's very well-organized by
project, from Tony Hawk's mountain home to a suburban family
basement to a Hamptons home for two sisters. Each project then
shows before and multiple after photos, followed by a breakdown
of the total budget for the project, something you don't often
see in a design book. Their style is very current, mixing a lot
of color, unique light fixtures, and floor coverings, for
which they share many of their favorite sources.

Julia's rating: 4 stars

They do look so smug on the cover! But, beyond that, Diana's review is right on the money. Great photos and layout. A huge source of inspired ideas from mixing and matching modern, vintage, textures, homemade, recycled, heirlooms, books ... Also, loved that they offered resources for where they find the great pieces they include in their projects. It might all be a tad over the top (who's got a $35k budget for a treehouse?!) but so much fun! Open the pages and let your imagination/fantasies run wild!
