This is a book I have flipped through again and again. Great photography compliments a real life approach to decorating.

Thank you for a great service and giving me the opportunity of acquiring such an interesting knowledge in decorating. I love it and I think "recycling" and other form of "recycling art" is the future.

Great book with beautiful photos March 5 2010
By Mom2two - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a gorgeous book full of generous photos and helpful descriptions about how to achieve a beautiful interior on a budget from both used materials and affordable new buys (with emphasis on the former). A must-have for anybody interested in vintage chic or flea market style decor. I cannot disagree more with the reviewers who say Rachel Ashwell's books are preferable to this one. Ashwell's books focus one HER style: wrinkly flowery fabrics, distressed wood finishes, and WHITE walls. Not for everyone. Thrifty Chic is not only for Ashwell's shabby chic followers, but also features spreads of different styles including modern style spaces. The point is that you can decorate your place on a budget and achieve a completely unique style, not a carbon copy of a mail order catalog. Great tips, great photos, great projects. Highly recommended.

Great book June 15 2009
By K. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book and love the pretty pictures - it has inspired me to go out treasure hunting. They also have some instructions for some decorator items you can make for your home - which are nice. I just wish the book was a little longer.

Very interesting July 29 2009
By Creative Class - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very interesting. The way things are shown that I would have never thought of. I have thrown out better things that were used in the book. I won't do that again.

Fab Book! A must-have! April 27 2010
By Dedra Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is full of great pictures. Which, let's be honest. Is THE most important element for a design book. The rooms in this book are eclectic and very European inspired. It's one of a few that I reach for first when I'm looking for inspiration. This is the main reason I buy design books to begin with...inspiration!

So, if you like an eclectic look and are looking for inspiration on how to create this look for yourself, you'll be very happy with this book!

thrifty chic July 10 2009
By Suzanne A. Sisson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I found this book to be very informative in many aspects. I have applied many of the ideas to my own which made my home projects quite unique. In times of these economical hardships, it only makes sense to use, re-use, and create new things, many of which are "one of a kind"!!
