Library Journal Review

These three books are beautifully illustrated with photographs of contemporary interiors. In the Waverly book four stylesÄEnglish country, clubby elegant, lighthearted and eclectic, and high-style ColonialÄare shown for living rooms, bedrooms, and dinning rooms, all sporting Waverly fabrics and wallpaper. The advantage of this book is the availability of Waverly products so that one can achieve exactly the look depicted. The book from Traditional Home focuses on designers who style a home in the classic look favored by the magazine. Like the Waverly book, this title gives do-it-yourself projects at the end. Rennicke's book takes a look at how the American Colonial style has been interpreted today. Illustrated with pictures of homes in the South, the Midwest, and New England, this book gives an overview of its interpretation of classic American style and then focuses on the use of color, fabric, and the like to explain and depict how to achieve this decorating style. Recommended particularly for its focus on American design. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
