Sarah is my favorite designer - if I could afford it I would have her (and Tommy) decorate my house top to bottom. I liked the book, but was a little disappointed with the amount of details - frankly, many of the same pictures (almost all, if not all from Sarah 101, her television show) are on her website. The website mentions paint colors used, etc., which the book does not. I also wish that she had included laundry rooms in the book. But, having said that, I am glad that I purchased the book and I will continue to watch the HGTV reruns (some of which I have memorized!) because Sarah is a wonderful designer.
I love her work on HGTV but I am disappointed by the lack of new information in her book. Although the photographs are excellent, the rooms have been covered, in greater depth, in her TV series and, therefore, the book is merely a portfolio of her past work.
I love Sarah's show on HGTV and expected really great book. Many of the photos were of projects she had done on her show. Was expecting so much more from Sarah.
So disappointed! The book is just a collection of some of her television shows...and not her best. There is absolutely nothing on her cottage or farmhouse which I think reflects her best work...and there is absolutely nothing that you haven't seen before. I love her show and hate that HGTV is so slow in getting it to the US but this book fell way short of what I expected.
I found the rooms in this book to have more of a "staged" look than a "lived-in" look. I am beginning to prefer the design books by home bloggers rather than the books by professional decorators--they are not as sterile and do not have that designed-all-at-once feel.
Absolutely disappointed with this book. Was expecting something fresh and new. Not only were these recycled projects, many of them didn't say timeless, they said 1980's crazy colors and 1980's faux-formal. Ugh!!!
The book is well laid out, nicely photographed, etc. BUT, I am still so disappointed. As many of the other reviewers, I'm a big fan and was so excited to see some new material. But it's almost all recycled content from her shows, which I've seen (and enjoyed) time and time again. Love you, Sarah, but I was so hoping to see something new here.
Very dissappointed to discover this book only reflects the HGTV side of Sarah Richardson. As the head of a bustling design firm with (assumably) a ton of clients why only highlight projects that we've already seen? Major fail in an attempt to whip a book together for the holiday ($$$) season. If there's ever another book, please honor the tradition of publishing new and exclusive looks.
