Our Review

If, like me, you take pleasure in looking around other people's homes, then you will love 1000 Home Ideas by Christian Sarramon. The former brochure designer, has spent the past 30 years photographing and collecting home ideas from around the globe.

From rustic and cozy, to contemporary and unconventional, this book will take you behind closed doors and show you how other people live and layout their homes. Full of interesting design decisions and neat storage ideas, the book covers both the minimalistic and cluttered. However, every home featured is very stylish.

Though more of a coffee-table art book than a practical home design book, this will provide you great inspiration for your own home. I particularly love the bookcases and wardrobe sections, which provide an insight on how different people organize.

You can pick up a copy of the book from Quadrille or Amazon now.
