KIRKUS REVIEW

If your house is not a home (a happily messy and cluttered one) and your home is not your castle, decorator Virginia Frankel who has spent many years on couches while doing over sofas will tell you what it reflects. The real you may just be a white fox throw removed from that Cosmopolitan girl, while you should avoid the benedict with a Britannica and a standing lamp. If you go for foam rubber and formica, you're a low-status TV type and if you install a sauna and a bidet, it's parvenu new money plumbing. Miss Frankel comments on all these in a Lucy Freemanesque fashion (she likes her books) and obviously represents a not too radical chic in truly interior decoration. Dim the lights over your water bed and you'll probably be seeing her on one of those small talk shows.
