— Martha Usiacke Breen
Home & Design

One of my favorite books ... Wonderful rooms with only two pages of text, a real show and tell book.
The National Post - Martha Usiacke Breen
They say a picture is worth a thousand words — or in this case, a thousand home ideas — and this new book...bears out the concept... It covers a variety of home categories: windows and doors, flooring, stairways, kitchens, storage, walls, lighting, colour and texture, outdoor spaces and more. But don't look for straightforward how-to decorating advice in this lavishly printed volume...The intent is purely inspirational, to spur readers to develop ideas for their own interiors based on the set pieces found on its pages. Part of what makes the book fun is the freedom with which the authors have chosen to illustrate each category; most of the interiors and details depicted in the photos are hardly stiff, art-directed showcases, but come from the homes of real, albeit imaginative individuals with highly specific quirks and preferences. And many of the photos and layouts make for sumptuous compositions in themselves, whether you're into redecorating or not. All in all, a great source for both casual dipping or more focused reading on a rainy afternoon.
Reference and Research Book News Book News
The clever premise of this design book is the themes that form the basis for each chapter, including shelves, floors, doors and windows, color and texture, and cooking and eating, among others. For each, interior design specialist Cliff offers a page of thoughts and suggestions on the theme then fills the rest of the chapter with many examples in scintillating photos taken by Sarramon in houses throughout Europe. The photos are presented in full-page plates or, more often, with many photos per page, and all without captions, so that the reader focuses entirely on the visual.

Preface

Introduction
Everybody thinks about their home. When you're young, if you have your own room, it becomes your world and you soon set about personalizing it, making it your private domain. When you leave home, you start to create another one - and you wonder how you're going to manage with all the decisions you'll need to make. Some folks dread it, and others just can't wait to go shopping. But not everything is available from a store. You'll need ideas, too. What type of floor will you have: carpets, mats, rugs or floorboards? Stone or brick, maybe? You will inherit some of the elements, and certain decisions will be made for you - by the space or the previous owners. No matter; you'll want to tailor it to your needs. Maybe you can't change the floors, the walls, the ceilings or the staircase, but you'll almost certainly need to repaint or replace some things, move them around - doors, perhaps, or even windows; an extension, a home office, a bigger bathroom. Even if the task is too big for you to undertake yourself, don't be put off. If you know the effect you want, you can easily find a local builder or craftsperson to do it for you. It's all a matter of choices, and there will be dozens of them; each one you make will say something about you, or your partner - or your parents. A terrifying prospect, and one you'll need to be prepared for - not only at the start of your homemaking life, but throughout it; when you move, or when you refurnish - as your circumstances, your influences or your income changes. The questions go on and on, but so do the answers - over 1,000 of them, all collected here in the work of the brilliant French photographer Christian Sarramon, who has spent 30 years photographing some of the most extraordinary, ideas-filled homes in the world.
