Top critical review
a lot of really old stuff
Reviewed in the United States on December 26, 2013
The cover photo is not a good indication of what's inside the book. Inside, there are a bunch of old pictures of old interior design from the 70s or 80s. And, in my opinion, even those historical design pics are fairly poor design, cluttered and disorganized messes. And poor photography to boot.
I feel I completely wasted my money, even buying it used. When they don't let you look inside a decorating book, it's probably a dead giveaway that you wouldn't buy it if you could see what's in there. Might be of interest to students of interior design for historical info, but really not very good for someone looking for inspiration. Don't be fooled by the cover of this book.
