HASH(0xa87a9dd4) out of 5 stars Possibly the Best Design Book I've Read May 27 2009
By S. Hinton - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book on a whim and it was even better than it seemed at first glance. The cover shot is an eclectic bohemian glam style, but the 'easy elegance' concept applies to multiple styles including modern, country and retro. Bartlett walks you through the concept of 'easy elegance' by reviewing it's four tenets: comfort, simplicity, function and individuality. Then it explains how to establish this in each room of the house.

You'd be surprised what a relief the 'easy elegance' vibe is. It's all about making a functional home full of what you love. It is not about details, paint colors and finishing touches. Bartlett is all about establishing the right vibe in your home, injecting yourself through your choice of furnishings.

It is just the book I've been looking for.

HASH(0xa87a69d8) out of 5 stars Lots on "Easy" - Little on "Elegance" Aug. 30 2009
By Aurora Rodriguez - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book didn't compliment my own personal style or decorating approach. I can see where the decorating ideas were easy but I didn't think there was much "elegance." For example, page 74 shows a sofa with a shredded seat cover and faded paint. The author comments this "only add to its allure, giving it character and interest." I can handle the faded paint and possibly faded upholstery but anytime fabric is shredded (a severe tear in this case), I don't see the allure or character and I lost complete interest.

This is more for the person who seeks very easy, simple and relaxed style for their home and not particular in mixing and "not" matching color, style and design. However, great photography in this book.

HASH(0xa87a9b4c) out of 5 stars insightful and enticing Sept. 5 2009
By Tamara St Fleur - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is absolutely the best design book I've come across so far, the pictures are so beautifully alluring that in creates a deep curiosity to see what the words actually say to describe the image and its contents. If only finding the beautiful furniture was a easy as fliping through the gorgeous pages.
HASH(0xa879a5b8) out of 5 stars Very Current and Not Too Fancy June 20 2011
By GGDallas - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was expecting to see some of the same photos, or rooms, like we sometimes do when we have several books by today's popular designers and stylists, but really pleasantly surprised that each one is new to me, and all sorts of eclectic styles and schemes are represented. There's a tad more verbiage than I like to see because I'm not looking for any sort of how-to suggestions, but the descriptions of each picture are just perfect, and informative. This is definitely one of my favorites.
