  1. Just got this book a few hours ago. I’ve looked at many of the designs. LOTS of different styles and ideas. There’s something for just about every taste. Both interior an exterior designs, some over the top and some understated, some cute and whimsical and some classy and elegant. This gave me some great ideas for this coming season.

  2. What a beautiful book! It is not only full of superb photographs, one feels like a privileged visitor to all of these elegant homes. The name dropping and inside baseball in re the interior designers is fun too. What’s not to love?

  3. I don’t even celebrate this holiday and I love this book. I love seeing how people live and how they follow traditions, while giving things their own modern edge. As I light my Chanukyah (Menorah) and fry my latkes I will still be enjoying this wonderful book.

  4. Classic Christmas traditions sprinkled with designer touches that we can duplicate at home. Pages of authentic holiday design, rather than staged settings for commercial marketing. You feel like you are sitting on the sofa, in the home. Bravo!

  5. I could not wait for this book to be published and was not at all disappointed. Rather I found it to exceed my expectations as the photography and layout is truly inspiring. This is a must read for any designer holiday enthusiast !

  6. I thought it Featured Lots of Many Wonderful Designers. These Small Up and Coming Designers will Definately Make a Name For Them Selves. As they should because people like them are our Small Businesses and the Back Bone of Our Nation! One Particular Designer I Enjoyed Particularly Reading about was Funk Living!

  7. Love this book! If you like Christmas books do not miss this one! You will get to see a lot of top decorators homes and they are so Beautiful! Worth the money!

  8. I love Christmas and decorating is such an important ritual. Photographs help us create our own special designs, this book inspired me ! I love that these decorators shared there beautiful homes with us. Enjoy!
