5.0 out of 5 stars TRAVEL BOOK
I give this book 5 stars because it is very artistic with beautiful photographs.
This book is NOT a decorating book. There are no interior shots, however,
you will find plenty of wonderful pictures. You will see close-ups of brooms,
shoes, pebbles etc. and if you appreciate good photography this is the
book for you. It makes a nice and exoctic...

3.0 out of 5 stars Great attention to unique details
I really loved the incorporation of unique details from foreign countries into design ideas. Some of the photos seemed a little too staged or styled instead of functional, but definitely a wellspring of ideas. What I did not enjoy was the struggle to read the text.

This review is from: Nomad: A Global Approach to Interior Style (Hardcover)
I really loved the incorporation of unique details from foreign countries into design ideas. Some of the photos seemed a little too staged or styled instead of functional, but definitely a wellspring of ideas. What I did not enjoy was the struggle to read the text. Much of the text was overlaid in small "typewriter" print onto very dark background pages. The effect was visually pleasing, but almost impossible to read. Sad, too, because I enjoyed the author's comments very much when I could read them.
I would buy other books by this author because I think that she has some important things to say about incorporating the obscure or insignificant objects we might otherwise overlook into our homes. Loved the summarizing of a national "palette" of color for the countries she featured.
