Reviews - What do customers think about Tuscany Interiors?
Over the Top Sep 20, 2003
This book did not provide any practical interior design ideas. If, however, you are into Tuscan, it would make a fabulous coffee table book.
Actually useful for design. Sep 6, 2003
Unlike most interior design idea books, this book actually has a fair number of interiors that are relevant to normal size homes and rooms. I would say that about half this book is useful for homes that aren't mansions. This is unusual, because most design books only have a few plates that are relevant to anything less than a Hearst manion. Definately a buy.
