KIRKUS REVIEW

One picture is worth a thousand Words might be the by-line for this book which depends almost entirely on the pictorial ""to show a group of well designed and well decorated homes created to the tastes of representative Americans by both professionals and amateurs."" Modern and traditional, with an emphasis on the former, perhaps more well-heeled a look than the ""representative"" would imply, this depicts apartments and homes, in the NortheaSt and Northwest; houses for constant and vacation living, the Various component rooms of abodes in 238 black-and-whites, 24 full-color plates. A glossary of decorating terms and styles is appended. An aid to over-all planning beyond the ambitions and reach of the House & Garden variety.
