    Lots of style...

    Lots of style, but short on substance. There is none of the interesting and intelligent writing that made "So Chic" a permanent library book. Lots of great pictures, but if you've been getting Elle Decor magazine all along, you've probably seen most of the photos. Still it is nice to have all those photos bound into one book.

    Pick it up - look at it for 10 minutes - you're done

    No practical ideas or hints. Just photos of homes that very few of us can afford. I was looking for actual decorating tips.
