The layout of this book is absolutely gorgeous, and the concept of taking inspiration from your travels to design your home decor is really exciting and inspiring. Unfortunately the style of the author, for the most part, was not very appealing to me. But the photos are gorgeous and I was inspired enough to craft my own new ideas about taking color palates from my travels to other countries and changing the style and decor of my house more regularly. I also really appreciate the unconventional travel choices the author made, including traveling to Syria as an single woman. Very empowering.
