Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these Styled: Secrets for Arranging Rooms, from Tabletops to Bookshelves I can get now!
I was suspicious at first when I got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited I found this online library....many thanks Kisses
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
wtffff i do not understand this!

Not a wide variety of decor styles photographed: mostly mid century and boho
By Amazon Customer
I follow Emily's blog and could not wait to buy this book. However, after reading it cover to cover, I was mildly disappointed. She has a quiz for what style you are, and then proceeds to have almost all photographs (however gorgeous) mostly in the mid century modern, or boho style. There isn't much of any of the others. If she is so talented, why can't she feature a cabin in the woods styled up, or a cottage home, or traditional house? Isn't there anything else to decorate with besides books, leather mid century chairs, fig leaf plants, and naked human art?

Save your money
I LOVE Emily Henderson, but resisted purchasing this book till she gave some great advice on her blog. I figured the book would be full of more of the same. I was determined to read the book cover to cover.
The first 26 pages are dedicated to how much better your life will be once you know your decorating style, which would be magically revealed to you once you took the quiz. The book elaborated on how it wold make your life easier, and would even reveal some things about yourself that would be helpful on a personal level.
The quiz starts by asking two questions, which determine the which set of questions you go on to answer from there. The first question was do you like curvy or streamlined (straight) furniture. I happen to like straight furniture, as I do not like wasted space. The second question asks, do you like your bookshelves sparse or loaded. I very much like my bookshelves loaded. I like to mentally calculate how much I have exceed the max load with each addition. From this I was directed to answer the first 10 questions.
I found the answers to the questions very pretentious, and not terribly relate-able . I tried to put a lot of thought in it, and it took me 30 minutes to answer all 10 questions. After sweating it out, I finally tallied my score, anxiously turned the page to find the results, and Emily's quiz accused me of being "Contemporary". In reading the description it states I like things minimal, but didn't I answer I like my bookshelves chuck full of stuff in the first place? Hmmmmmm!
I am a lot of things, but contemporary is not one of them...not even a little tiny bit. In fact, I deal and collect antiques. My new "contemporary" identity told me I have little use for the past. Everything in my house has a past. I actually found myself resenting the author.....my former hero. I studied the other styles with a longing, trying to figure out what I could have answered differently. I took the quiz again with the same results.
After the quiz, and the lost promise of self-awareness, i just didn't know where to go from there. I tried opening the book again, but was lost. I kind of skimmed through it, but not in total. Then I opened onto a page where the author mention a grid of daguerreotypes, and she lost me for good. Those were not daguerreotypes, they were etchings. Something completely, and totally different, not even in the same playing field. Perhaps if she were "contemporary" like myself, she would actually know the difference in her antique images.
Hope this review does not affect this books Ebay value.

... this book because I read Emily's blog and I enjoyed her "Secrets of a Stylist" show
I purchased this book because I read Emily's blog and I enjoyed her "Secrets of a Stylist" show. She's a fabulous writer- very real and personable. In general, I like her style. So maybe I had higher hopes for this book than what was warranted. This isn't a design book. It's not about decorating, though it sort of tries to be. It's essentially about styling your home for photos, or to impress guests. The book really started to break down when she moved into functional spaces, since her philosophy here seems to be "style first".
The majority of the book is images of rooms, including overall shots and tighter detail shots, with a brief description and some highlighted details of what she did with the styling. Sometimes spaces in two different homes were combined on a page, and that was a little confusing at times. The photography was all very good. There wasn't a chapter on kid's spaces. That was sort of a weird exclusion. I also felt like almost all the spaces were a bit over-styled. I know that's how Emily leans, but it would have been nice to see more minimally-decorated spaces. I think most of the rooms could have benefited with one less vignette each.
The book starts off with a style quiz, similar to what she did for her clients in her show. Now, I like a quiz as much as the next person, but this quiz has some issues. First, it used way too many references that aren't particularly common knowledge, and it seemed to assume a high-end lifestyle. I don't think the point system she uses actually works. In the end, I ignored the quiz portion, and decided that the chapter works a lot better as just a style glossary or reference. She barely references the styles again, so I did have to ask "what's the actual point here?"
I did really like the middle chapter on the 10 steps to a styled space. It was great advice and easy-to-follow steps that anyone can use and apply to their own situation. I think Emily's personality really showed through the most in that chapter. Beyond this chapter, however, I didn't walk away with very much additional knowledge.
I like "Styled" for it's coffee-table cred. There are a ton of pictures, and the rooms are nice to look at. But these styled spaces barely translate to the way I live my life, and how I use my spaces. About the most I can take away from it is her 10-step process and a little bit more confidence styling my bookshelves.
