I have been thinking about redecorating my home for a few months now, so I was really excited to read this book. I was especially interested to see how author, Lisa Giramonti, envisioned rooms from different books.

The book is beautiful. It is full of large and colorful photos to inspire your own decorating ideas. Complementing the photos are quotes from books and authors. I enjoyed reading about the perfect cozy reading nook and adding the finishing touches to any room. While many of the concepts won’t necessarily work in my own home, it did give me many ideas that I can add to my own decorating style.

As for the cover, it is also beautiful. One large photo on the cover with a very nice blue spine. The matte works very well with the hardcover binding. It would make both a wonderful gift and a beautiful coffee table book.  It has already found its way to my coffee table.

I really did enjoy this book. While not everything will work in my home, many of the decorating ideas can be tweaked to fit my own style. I am giving this 4.5 out of 5 stars for a beautiful coffee table book full of decorating ideas perfect for the bibliophile.
