Gypsy: A World of ColourInteriors Reviews
Though some have criticized this book for not be "decorate-y," enough, I beg to differ. Written in the style of an intimate travel journal, this book is a love letter to travel. The photographs are stunning and scrumptious, plus, I learned a lot. Did you know the Gulf Stream travels all the way from Florida to the northern most tip of Scotland where it creates a semi-tropical environment for both flora and fauna? Neither did I, and that folks, is why you read.
Not a huge fan of the name, but as someone who absolutely LOVES to travel and see the way interior spaces shape our lives and can even became a part of our cultural identity, this was a very fun book to flip through.
I picked up this book because I like all things gypsy and the book cover was interesting and some of the paintings inside were intriguing. But then I got it home and realized the pictures are rooms/spaces from around the globe, but they are staged with furniture bought from places other than the place they are being photographed in. It's like looking at a catalogue for fancy furniture, but you wanted an art book instead or a travel book or a poetry book, but it isn't any of that. It's like the designer didn't know how to stop selling objects and learn to see beauty where she was at. I tried to be inspired, but I was just left feeling annoyed.
Not much content, but a lot of pretty pictures.
This is a beautiful book. If I were going to write a book, I would want it to look like this.The author's decorating style does not appeal to me. All I see is a lot of junk that is going to need to be dusted.
A combination of travel diary and interior design ideas. Some beautiful photographs and colour palettes along with some interesting historical facts and travel tips.
The colors and writing are very nice, a kind of travel diary if you will. The designs were not much to my taste and I would have liked to see more pics from her actual trips versus her inspired designs.
Delicious, rich, lush, beautiful, inspirational! THE perfect coffee table book!
This is a gorgeous inspirational read - the section on Ecuador and Transylvania are mesmerising. Lots of interior ideas and how to translate your travel memories into every day interiors.
Gorgeous book. With each turn of the page a wonderful scene. A perfect book for me with the mix of photography, history, art, decorating and travel. Love!
