    1. Don't get me wrong -- this book is nicely done. Beautiful photographs, and the author does a good job of really showcasing the basics of her style. But after a few pages, the rooms all seemed to run together -- too much of the same formula: white walls, wood floors, lots and lots of bright colors. These homes all had a distinctively European flavor, and I had trouble envisioning how this decorating style would work in what I think of as a more traditionally American home. So as a practical guide [...]

    2. When I chose the paint colors for my tiny condo, my husband said it's okaynda boring. But I needed that neutral backdrop for all the colorful and eclectic tchotchkes and art that I wanted for a tranquil but also personal and interesting home--which makes a cohesive decor really, really, really a challenge for me.

    3. While I love the concept that Gueniau wrote about, adding more color into your home that examples feel pretty flat and the might have been the same house throughout the entire book.

    4. I love color! I love Scandanavian design! I should love this book - but it hurt my eyes. There were too many little pieces of all the colors without anything for them to relate back to, to pull them together; the white walls are meant to make it less chaotic, but all they do is emphasize the busyness that is happening in each picture. The book is well done, and if this is your style, you'll enjoy a read-through. Teenaged me would have loved it. Grownup me finds it chaotic.

    5. Very pretty, beautifully produced book. Not a run-of-the-mill decorating book, this lady's individual style really stands out.
