Booklist Review

Are the majority of your readers active and energetic doers or content to be armchair decorators? Either personality will find solace and satisfaction in these new interior books, both featuring pictures galore. Lynn, a contributor to Good Morning America, tries her hand at emulating Martha Stewart. And in this first of a projected series, she stacks up very well against the decorating doyenne. Lynn's 25 projects are amazingly easy to accomplish, ranging from etched glasses to mosaic serving trays, all accompanied by oversize type, a generous number of color photographs, and step-by-step instructions. Her taste is impeccable; she offers a choice of designs and styles that are contemporary yet very trendy. And the words themselves speak to inspiration and a you-can-do-it attitude. No airs, no fuss. A glossary of terms and tools and a resource guide are appended. London designer Marston, who almost single-handedly drove the revival of conservatories when he launched his business in 1972, now shares some secrets of his success. That sharing becomes more visual than textual in nature, since color photographs of his commissions--usually in public spaces or in very upper-class European homes and estates--dominate the book. Divided into discussions of such topics as architecture and accessories, the book presents ideas rather than specifics, whether protecting plants from the vagaries of weather or simply enjoying the sun's rays 12 months a year. --Barbara Jacobs
