Why Should I Read This: Black and White by Celerie Kemble |
May 8, 2012
Remember I talked about this book here and here? Well, I finally got around to reading it, and I was not disappointed. I’m really excited to start having book reviews (scroll down for the first one) here at Rooms and Words!
Celerie Kemble’s first book is one of my all time decorating books, not only thanks to her gorgeous interiors but also due to her intelligent and easy-going writing voice. It’s a great how-to book for anyone who’s decorating their home or trying to get into the decor industry, and it lacks that thin air of snobbizm that sometimes comes with the territory. However, with To Your Taste, Kemble was well within her comfort zone of colorful and bold interiors, while Black and White is unknown water (as Celerie herself says) and is more about experimenting. Is it for you? Read on to see if it fits your interests and needs:
So, what’s your verdict? Will you be reading Black and White (and a little in between) or not?
