Library Journal Review

Ross has put together an appealing book with 250 lavish photographs that do not offer the traditional idea of ``country'' decorating. She has combined contrasting styles--rough with smooth, rustic with formal, sophisticated with folksy--and come out with a refined but very warm and comfortable style. This ``formal country'' style encourages one to discard old rules of decoration and allow personal taste to come through. Recommended for public libraries.-- Barbara Bartos, St. Croix Cty.
