Even if you've never seen Candice Olson's TV show (Divine Design) you will find this book chock full of great photos, descriptions and her complete layout of each room. If you have never seen her work, when you see the before pictures, then the after pictures your mouth will drop open. It's amazing what she can do. What I like about Candice as a designer is that her designs are totally focused on creating a beautiful design but also incorporating a family's lifestyle into the design. She does not just create "show rooms" she makes the rooms functional for the family. My only quibble, which is the same quibble I have about the TV show is that there are no costs listed. You have NO idea how much these rooms costs! Saying that, I would gladly save my money to have her come and decorate a few rooms in my house! It's too bad for me she lives in Canada and not the U. S.
What are my thoughts on this book..."How Divine."
My sister and daughters were laughing at me after I told them that I was recording all of Candice Olson's Devine Design show on TV that I was able to watch for about 2 months prior to Christmas. So as a late Christmas gift my sister gave me Candice Olson's on Design book.
I love the book; it's very different looking at the rooms that's she designed on TV in a book and the pictures are just as great if not better. There's only 1 problem I found, the master bedroom design under the title "Best for Last" pages 90-95 the diagram (on page 92) does not belong to that design, it actually belongs to the master bedroom design under "Graciously Grown-Up" pages 102-107. All and all it is a great book; it includes some of my favorites, like a little girl's bedroom, a small picture of a Nursery, the Mom and Dad's Oasis master bathroom, the Devine Dining Room along with some new favorites from shows that I've missed. I look forward into seeing what else Candice Olson comes up with.
