To do this:
1. Stand the book vertically, with the spine on a flat surface
2. Open both the front cover and back cover, so that they lie flat
3. Alternately open a few pages from the front and back, gently pressing along the seam, working your way towards the middle
4. Work the book in this way a few times, so that the spine expands and opens up. You’ll find it much easier to read after this.
On another note: this book’s purpose is to TEACH you how to Identify styles and motifs that you enjoy, and is a companion on your journey to figure out what YOU enjoy-it’s an exercise in critical thinking. Yes, the photos are mostly neutral, and you may think that the photos do not have enough color. However, you should not take this as a disappointment for the book. In fact, a congratulations is in order- you succeeded in what the goal of the book was- to teach you to indentify what YOU like and dislike. This isn’t a ‘pick and choose’ catalogue- it’s a textbook. And it’s a fantastic textbook
Overall, not enough variety in the designs, and waaaay to much neutral.

it's not a book for the modern shinny minimalists prison/hospital style wannabe customer/designers , it's a book about what a home should be and a statement about the value of natural materials and the connection between us, the humans, and this planet, Earth. We tend to forget that we are a form of life that is forever connected with this planet and for us to be happy, we have to stay true to what mother Earth offered us long time ago: wood and stone and iron and clay and plants.
And to call ourselves humans we also have to stay true to friendship, love, compassion, honesty, hard work, and truth.
You showed us a very pleasant mix of how to put all these together and build a HOME FOR A FAMILY, not a prison of our vain desires. Thank you!
I would've loved more stuff about the kitchen design but I am sure this it's coming very soon.
