Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
06/15/2014
Celebrated for his interior design and visual merchandising skills, Watson, founder of the Watson Kennedy shops, shares some of his favorite things in hopes of inspiring readers to create their own personal style rather than steadfastly following his. Filled with close to 300 color photographs that he has taken of his homes and stores, Watson presents his ideas for entertaining (including recipes), decorating with vintage items and flea market finds, and overall making one's home more "comfortable, visually rich, and personal." Tips are sprinkled throughout, along with resources for many of the suggested items. VERDICT This casual, personal style of decor continues to be popular and Watson's book provides more enlightenment for amateur decorators.
