Product Description

Review

A New York Times Best Seller!

“…interior designer Nancy Braithwaite’s first book Simplicity is a striking tutorial in the power of simplicity in design. Divided into five sections, the book begins with her manifesto on simplicity and the aspects of design used to achieve it…she presents several houses as case studies, displaying the power of these principles in action and emphasizing the importance of craftsmanship in design…” –Editor at Large

“…guaranteed to inspire just about every corner of your life. Seeing the luxurious restraint of a room designed by Nancy Braithwaite is enough to make even a maximalist consider paring down. It’s no wonder her first book is one the design world has been breathlessly awaiting for years. Readers can delve deep into her guiding principles of simplicity with a particular focus on craftsmanship in design, or just flip through the images and drool.” –One King’s Lane
 
“…Simplicity features page after glorious page of her stunning work, with a diverse showcase of homes— classic to contemporary—beautifully photographed.“ —Southern Seasons
 
“Required for fall reading” –Veranda

“…a stunning assemblage of rooms created with extraordinary form, color and shape.” –Papercity

“The 296-page book is filled to the brim with breathtaking images of both interior and exterior spaces, but it also provides a thought-provoking narrative that helps readers understand the principles that work together to pack a powerful visual punch…this is a book that will not only look beautiful on the coffee table but also will provide hours of serious contemplation…” –Indulge Magazine

“She’s a minimalist designer, but Nancy’s work is far from sterile. Her iconic and distinctive taste is beautifully mapped out on 295 pages with peeks and insights into her rules of design and architecture. We love that dotted cover too.” –Southern Living
 
“Positively elegant in every way” –Bask

“The 296-page book is filled to the brim with breathtaking images of both interior and exterior spaces, but it also provides a thought-provoking narrative that helps readers understand the principles that work together to pack a powerful visual punch… this is a book that will not only look beautiful on the coffee table but also will provide hours of serious contemplation about architecture and composition, as well as color, pattern and texture and the incorporation of art and crafts.” –Star-Telegram

HASH(0x9a0167c8) out of 5 stars Breathtakingly Elegant Oct. 15 2014
By Michael H Garrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A tour de force of exemplary restrained interior decorating style! The restraint used to create such beautifully simple interiors is to be lauded! The use of significant furnishings and embellishments is a symphony of elegant and timeless style. If you appreciate a paired down and well edited style of interior decoration consider this book a masterclass!

By Erica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First, let me say I'm not a designer. I purchased this book for design inspiration for my own home. Overall, I just didn't "get" this book. I understand that it was all about simplicity, but in my opinion the book was bland and I would have appreciated more use of color. You can be simple but also include beautiful colors.

I found the rooms in the book to make a statement but they weren't particularly beautiful. Most, in my opinion were quite austere and didn't lend themselves to be the kind of home that's meant to be lived in--but rather the kind of home that's meant to be shown off. I personally, prefer the former.

While the design aesthetic is not for me, I certainly do appreciate the consistency of the author's style throughout the book. She "knows who she is." I can see why others would enjoy it--just not for me.

HASH(0x99b2e834) out of 5 stars It's all black and white! Nov. 3 2014
By Suzie Seagull - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you want to decorate solely in black and white, then you might like this designer book. One page has some dark purple, but overall there is no color. Sure, picture are beautiful, but few "real life" people will want to decorate as this author has.
