I thought the book hit on every general topic her reader would want to further educate their knowledge + step inside of the mind of THE blogging maven, ms. grace bonney! well done!!! bravo!
Sorry to all her blog fans, but unless your really into very homemade decor this is not the "design" book for you. Nothing new or inventive. Still a bit confused at the popularity of not only her blog, but this book. I was hoping she might be a little more adventurous and original in the book......but no. It's been done before and better. Sorry, but cannot recommend spending the money on this.
Big fan of the blog!
This book is beautiful on my iPad, however the table of contents is completely wrong. It can be daunting to peruse this 400+ page book without an accurate guide. I should have put my $10 towards the physical book. Which by the way I would give 5 stars!
