Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really like this book because in my eyes this is how seaside style should be.
Lots of whitewashed interiors kept simple and humble. I do not connect with these huge
seaside mansions, called cottages, they show in other books.
Just a little fisherman's hut is enough to enjoy the coast. And this book has captured this idea.
I also ordered Barbara Jacksier's Waterside Cottages and hope it will be similar in style.
I am tired of looking at Architectural Digest type homes. Show us how real people live and how to
enjoy the scenery.

Good basic, but sophisticated beach home ideas May 10 2008
By endless summer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a good book on the basics of how to decorate a coastal home. For the novice in "beachy" decor or the landlubber who craves a coastal look in their landlocked home, it gives general information about paint colors, lighting, accessories, furniture choices, utilizing the natural beauty of the ocean view, and use of a variety of textures to enhance the seaside home. The photography is superb, but i found the colors atonal and drab at times and the distressed furniture and "shabby chic" look somewhat boring and unappealing. The authors' tone is quite sophisticated and they seem to write with a definite European sensibility and flair.

Inspirational Resourse & Coffee Table Book Nov. 15 2009
By SVerity - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have seen this book in many exclusive homeware stores throughout Sydney [Australia] at quite a high mark up - so was easily tempted to purchase on Amazon with competitive pricing and AUD being quite good at the time. Overall this book is both an inspirational & aspirational book. It can easily sit comfortably on a coffee table or - as in my case in my design library as a resource to refer to for pure visual & wordsmith candy. I enjoyed looking through this book - however if you are thinking with will give you a blow-by-blow directive on how to set up a Coastal style - this is not the book for you - this is at a higher interpretive aesthetic level. All the same an incredibly gorgeous book and one worth adding to your library. Enjoy.

On coastal living Dec 19 2011

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Living on the east coast of Australia, and only 100 mtrs from the sea, I found this book helpful and inspiring. We have used some of its ideas for our beach house and they have worked well. If you are doing up a beach house it is certainly worth buying. Makes a great coffee table book also.

Could have better pictures. July 18 2010
By L. Silva - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I got this because I wanted pretty pictures, like many of the reviews said it would. But many of the pictures are small and close ups. So I'm kinda disapointed.
