Review by goodnightmoon
Several repeated images from Domino magazine, but this time around, they are used as teaching points. Room by room, this book demonstrated design principles, with plenty of examples. I especially liked the "Domino effect" sections, with designers showcasing the items they used, then on the next page, you can see the whole room put together. Good effort at demystifying the design process.
Review by kristenn
I'm in the process of buying a house and this was the first decorating book I picked up at the library, somewhat at random. So I can't speak to how original the material is, just how helpful. After finishing this, I'm quite sad that the magazine (Domino) is no more. I would have subscribed. The photos are lovely, of course. The furniture is not totally out of reach for the average person. The case studies and the mix-and-match ideas were particularly helpful. There's one section where a room has the same furniture arranged three different ways, depending on the focus; I would have loved to see that done many more times with additional rooms. It would have been nice to have more than one page worth of help on determining your own style; I still have no idea there. Nice resources list in the back.
