Waterside Cottages Reviews
The cover perfectly fits the contents of this beach décor book. I particularly liked the southern style beach homes featured in here, but If that isn't your thing, keep turning the pages. You will find New England style and Carribean cottages as well. As befitting the cottage style, anyone anywhere can replicate the slipcovered, vintage collected easy style depicted here.
I own an ungodly amount of decorating books and so I am very selective when it comes to adding another one to my collection. Waterside Cottages has now gone to the top of my list. It is a pure delight, filled with beautiful photos and helpful commentary. I highly recommend this book to any and all who long for an ocean cottage of their own or who are interested in seaside decorating.
The pictures in this book are mostly a very inconsistent & poor quality, appearing mostly clear and occasionally blurry in their published, minimized sizes. When any of the included pictures are expanded, they all become horribly pixelated and some become barely visible, even despite the expanded size. A few pictures appear to be familiar & possibly stolen from a search engine. The inconstant picture quality makes me wonder if the pictures aren't original to this book... That said, I do enjoy this book.
* Great book!...Brand new!!!. Thanx!. JN.~*~.
I was intrigued by the cover of this book and after receiving it and flipping through it, I was very disappointed. I had envisioned it to be a collection of easy to replicate fun and bright nautical decorating ideas. It turned out to be a lot of mismatched items with way too much of a cluttered look. I returned the book.
Wonderful colors but I'm a fraud living in the suburbs of LA no where near the beach only dreaming of it.
The cover photo is the prettiest picture in the book which is filled with too many dark interiors. Interiors are also Victorian- decor is overdone with flowers, is garish, too feminine. But many individuals may find that attractive.
love this book
