The photos are just lovely. The featured interiors range from romantic to vintage to masculine to natural, and I reached the last page with a better sense of how I'd like to decorate my own apartment. Bartlett & Coote have curated interiors that show relying on whites and pastels doesn't have to be boring if you incorporate statement pieces, texture, and carefully considered pops of color.
I was not impressed with the text, however. The writing became redundant 20 pages in, and more often than not, was unnecessary or obvious. Several of the full-page spreads also featured a famous quotation that added nothing to the value of the image or message of the book.
I borrowed this book from the library, and recommend anyone interested in this palette to do so, as well.
