This book is gorgeous and inspiring. However, the tips seem a bit out of reach for the average person. Having an already spectacular apartment or house seems to be the key. Yet, I'm still a sucker for the fabulous photos.

This one is a little more useful if you're looking for specific ideas, it's divided up by type of room. Also it has a lot of very useful advice about mixing and matching diffent styles. Plus, the cover is so pretty!

I'm in the process of buying a house and this was the first decorating book I picked up at the library, somewhat at random. So I can't speak to how original the material is, just how helpful. After finishing this, I'm quite sad that the magazine (Domino) is no more. I would have subscribed. The photos are lovely, of course. The furniture is not totally out of reach for the average person. The case studies and the mix-and-match ideas were particularly helpful. There's one section where a room has the same furniture arranged three different ways, depending on the focus; I would have loved to see that done many more times with additional rooms. It would have been nice to have more than one page worth of help on determining your own style; I still have no idea there. Nice resources list in the back. ( )

This book was pretty disappointing. I was hoping for some ideas for decorating small spaces on a budget. What this book is good at is showing you what rich people do to decorate their humongous homes. The tiny section on decorating small rooms shows rooms that are bigger than my current apartment. That said, a few of the pictures gave me some ideas so it's not all wasted. ( )

this is a guide to decorating put together by the staff of the now-defunct decorating magazine, Domino. I quite enjoyed it, if only for the lush, gorgeous photography. It has some good ideas, too!
