3.0 out of 5 stars Expected more... May 18 2005
By K. Weiss - Published on Amazon.com
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry to say..... Feb. 24 2006
By M. Rajcic - Published on Amazon.com
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.
