This book was enthusiastically received by one of the most difficult people on then planet to buy for. The photos and accompanying text are beautifully done and cover a lot of ground. A perfect gift that looks beautiful on the coffee table all year round, but especially during the holidays while providing decorating ideas and, best of all, the interesting back stories for these phenomenal homes.
Beautiful photography, interesting chapters and quality publishing. A PERFECT Christmas book for everyone! This book is especially exciting for me and the other volunteer decorators and staff at The David Davis Mansion in Bloomington, Il (Chapter 19) Month of planning, creating and then finally decorating go into beauty of the mansion. You won't be disappointed, every page is breathtakingly beautiful. Merry Christmas!
