Beautiful book - now on the coffee table... - 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.Beautiful book - now on the coffee table... By Frazzled Dad On the coffee table for all to enjoy. Beautifully put together book. This was a gift to my wife and she loved it. It is sitting on the coffee table for all to enjoy. Not the cheapest book I have ever bought, but it was available online immediately (not so in stores). It arrived on time and was in excellent shape (as it should have been for a new book).
Above and Beyond Glorious - 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful.Above and Beyond Glorious By A decorating fanatic in Southern California This book made me look at things differently. Shapes, textures, etc.It's not your typical boring "put a rug in the room and stick matching furnitureon it, blah, blah, blah." It's definitely different, but in a great way. I love it.
