HASH(0x9c6930fc) out of 5 stars 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.

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

HASH(0x9c69330c) out of 5 stars 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. :)

HASH(0x9c693600) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9c693b04) out of 5 stars Diverse interiors with airy feel, photographs are better than text May 12 2015
By E. Aldworth - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The design philosophy of this book can be summed up by the following words from its introduction: airy, artful, vintage, simplistic, and easy-going. The authors succeed in showing a diverse collection of interiors that are thematically connected by both those elements and light palettes.

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.
