This is one of the best books that I have ever read or owned on decorating. It expands the definition of "country style" to include not only American but European influences too. I would categorize it equally as an architectural, landscaping and art book. I still find new images that I haven't noticed before everytime I look at it since it has an unbelievable amount of content from Tuscany to Nordic homes to gypsy wagons. If you only buy one book on country decorating, make this book the one, your view of country decorating will be much broader and more spiritual. Taschen books have set a new standard in quality.
