Finally, a Cottage Decor book with pure class. I rarely leave reviews but felt a overwhelming need to share my thoughts. My first thought just looking at the pictures, WOW! This book is packed with many inspirational ideas that is very doable for anyone interested in creating a home in beautifully updated Cottage Style. If you like Cottage home style, this book will give you a fresh new approach to all types of Cottage Decorating. As a Interior Decorator, I highly recommend that you get this book. You will not be disappointed!

Expected more... May 18 2005
By K. Weiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For those of you who love lush and beautiful photographs, this book will disappoint. The photos are faded, especially sunny rooms which look washed out. I would highly recommend Cottage Decorating by Sunset and Cottage Style by Mary Emmerling. Although the latter is from 1998, the photos are still fresh and bright.

This is such a terrific reference book. The photos are all just gorgeous - it was a treat to page through and peruse. Text is full of tidbits and hints - a must for any decorating afficianado. Today's country is simplified and elegant. Enjoy!

Sorry to say..... Feb. 24 2006
By M. Rajcic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was just an O.K. book. I love decorating books, this is my least favorite. Usually decorating books inspire me and I can't put them down or at least have to fill the book with post-it notes to mark great ideas. This book I looked at,once maybe twice... it didn't give me the inspiration to do anything. Pictuers are nice... but the context,the way its split up ,then and now is just boring . There are much better books on cottage decor out there. just have to say sorry but not my fav.
