As History & Biography: Bravo! As Design Inspiration: Blah! 2. April 2007
Von Greg Robertson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book for my wife, who is an artist and color consultant, because I thought she'd enjoy seeing an iconic designer known for her bold use of color and thematic environments -- especially done on a grand scale. And, yes, you will find page after page after page of grand ballrooms, hotel lobbies, mansion-size dining rooms, and so on here.

80% of them, unfortunately, are photographed in black & white. So much for the bold use of color.

There are two great color photos -- pages 161 and 207 -- that show off Draper's lush, vibrant style. But the rest of the book is either slightly out of focus color photos, color illustrations and old ads, or black & white photos. It's just sad in how it under-represents Dorothy Draper.

"But be fair," you say. "Dorothy Draper's peak took place before the advent of color photography." That's fine. But this book is a perfect example of the rare publishing project that truly is BEGGING for Photoshop colorization. On page 53, for example, the text refers to a House & Garden magazine article which declared one of Draper's most visible design projects, Hampshire House, to be "a gold mine of decorating ideas, particularly in color." And yet all four photos on that spread are in black & white, as are the spreads before and after it. A very good Photoshop artist -- and several do perfect, true-to-life work -- could give those old black & white shots the vivid, vibrant colors that would represent Dorothy Draper properly and accurately without changing Draper's style one iota.

As I say in my title, as a history (of the advent of superstar designers) and a biography (of Draper), this is a very good book that should not be overlooked. But how can you do a history of bold interior design, or a biography of a top interior designer, without SHOWING the vivacious use of color which was central to both? That's like doing a bio of Abe Lincoln without including the Gettysburg Address.

So is this worth seeing? Definitely. Worth buying used? Probably. Worth buying new? Only if you're rich.

Outside of book is beautifull,inside a bit dissapointing. 1. Juni 2006
Von Sybe Sijt Meerstra - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The book is very well made and the photography is good given the age of the photos available. But it is mainly about hotels,lobbies and so on. I would like to have seen more houses of individual clients as well and more rooms done by Carleton Varney of a recent date. I think we will have to wait for a book about Carleton Varney himself to see the "Draper" touch in this century.

Disappointing 9. Juni 2006
Von Jill McCurdy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As an avid fan of Dorothy Draper style, I found the quality of the photography, and the lack of color photos, frustrating. In this digital age, it would have been interesting, and possible, to view the b/w photos alongside a digitally colored version to get the real impact of these beautiful rooms. A few glossy pages would have also helped. Happy to have this book in my collection, but unlikely it will be viewed as frequently and lovingly as Kelly Wearstler's books.

An incredible collection and celebration of timeless interior design concepts 6. Juli 2006
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In The Pink: Dorothy Draper, America's Most Fabulous Decorator by Carleton Varney is an incredible collection and celebration of timeless interior design concepts by the renowned interior designer and decorator Dorothy Draper, a woman far ahead of her age. Deftly compiling an profusely illustrated compendium of Draper's remarkable work, In The Pink holds the reader's total attention from first page to last with an informative text enhanced with photography showcasing memorable designs created by the sharp eye and even sharper imagination of Draper throughout her world acclaimed career. A "must" addition to professional and academic library Interior Design reference collections, In The Pink is to be given high praise and recommendation for non-specialist general readers with an interest in interior design.
