A coffee-table book full of buildings and rooms that serve better as still life than as dwelling machines. Almost all of the photographs show places that look uncomfortable, and many of them show the unlivable. The antepenultimate section, "Elements," usefully describes bits and pieces of minimal dwelling places, and this redeems the book. You can gather useful ideas from this section.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0500283702, Paperback)

The new minimalist style of interior design is not about bare, white-walled rooms, starkly devoid of signs of human life; nor is it about massive expense and austere living. Many of today's designers - no longer content with hard-edged purity - adapt the minimalist vocabulary and imbue it with innovative, yet practical, twists. This book offers visual inspiration and ideas for flexible, livable, enjoyable and functional spaces that artfully combine the beauty and spirituality of minimalism with an exhuberant love of exotic woods and metals, varied colours, playful and mysterious forms and the requisite respect for natural light, clean lines and an easy modern lifestyle.
