Pale and very interesting March 23 2011
By Laura M. Brodniak - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Got my copy tonight and had a hard time putting this down. This is a solid representation of several "styles" of decorating, under the common theme of "pale". Far from being dull, harsh, or hard to live with, the book presents many lovely photos of real homes -- ones you can imagine actual people living in. It fits in nicely with the current trend (craze?) for reusing, recycling, and re-purposing. I think I'll find myself turning to this on a regular basis -- not just for home design, but to inspire other endeavors.

white & dull June 13 2011

Not worth the money. Multiple photos of the same six rooms in one large book. No imagination. Do not waste your money

Nice accents Dec 27 2011
By 12Junes - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I could never live with so much white, but I still found inspiration in this book. I like the use of older not-so -perfect accent pieces to bring character to a room and warmth to a cool pallet. I bought this book to get some ideas for neutralizing my home before I put it on the market, but I'll probably keep it around for awhile and maybe use some ideas in my next house.

Love this book!!!! July 16 2013
By Antoinette - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love this book. I adore Scandinavian design and I really enjoyed this book. It's not just beautiful inspiring pictures, it has tips on creating a "pale and interesting" interior without the rooms looking washed out. I would highly recommend this book to those who love ethereal, dreamy, peaceful, mostly white interiors and want tips on how to keep it interesting. Well rounded book from pictures to the text. :)

Perfectly Pale May 15 2011
By E. Hicks - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In this book, Atlanta Bartlett and her husband Dave Coote prove that having a white palette doesn't limit you to a feminine, floral look. Their images achieve the perfect balance of industrial and romantic/country. The book includes many homes that I hadn't seen before in magazines or other books, and offers many ideas for upcycling. I think that this look is very modern even though it harks back to the past. A beautiful book with a clever title.
