Library Journal Review

Conran's The Essential House Book (Crown, 1994) provided an excellent overview of how to design domestic interiors. Here he gives advice on how to create a more comfortable, relaxed way of living through interior design. Throughout, he gives examples of what he considers important elements when designing for ease of living and illustrates these ideas with beautifully photographed interiors that depict a modern, clean, uncluttered style. Professional and design school libraries will find this book particularly useful for Conran's discussion of his design approach. (c) Copyright 2010.
