Library Journal Review

Multitudinous country decorating ideas are captured in these two books from Country Living magazine. Former House Beautiful editor Butcher takes nature as inspiration for her color combinations, with themes such as field and woodland or slate and stone. Color photographs of interiors are accompanied by sidebars full of tips on the use of color, light, texture, and fabric in ways that mirror the outdoors. Strutt, owner of the fabric firm Cabbages & Roses, provides decorating tips for using vintage items-glass, ceramics, furniture, and particularly textiles-throughout the house. Butcher's book is recommended for any size public library, as its advice on the use of color will be helpful to amateurs; purchase Strutt's book where patrons can't get enough of vintage and country decor.
