I love this book. Even though my style is more Pottery Barn (Yes, I am sure Atlanta Bartlett is cringing if she ever reads this review), I am a lover of white. This book captures the essence of white and will now become my "go to" for all things white. Just the other day, I bought this dark stained ratty thrift store dresser and in my mind I wanted it to become a worn shade of white. I was not sure how to execute this look but after spending some time looking over the pages of this book, I had the confidence to achieve the look I wanted. This book is about display, pattern, accent colour, & texture. Atlanta Bartlett takes you through several themes: classic, romantic, beach, country and modern. There is really something here for all styles. If you do any decorating, either your own personal home or professionally, then this book needs to be in your library. This is the Bible on all things white. Think Shabby Chic meets Anthropology meets Vintage Eclectic.
