Carolyne Roehm

The book itself is great, the condition as stated "VERY GOOD CONDITION" was totally false. I don't know who passed quality control for this. It was awful. Smelled and was all faded. BUt still like the book. Just wish it was in better condition.

Caroline Roehm Inspires!

I saw this book for the first time on Oprah and was very impressed with Caroline's ideas. When I saw the book I was completely dazzled. I am an author and an illustrator, and just looking at these pages makes me want to start painting! Fabulous.

A page-turner feast for the eyes.

Page after page of lush photographs--flowers, table settings, rooms, vignettes. Roehm's color sense is superb. i.e.her use of brown with red, or sprouting spring green with violet. Although the settings are lavish, the ideas are inspiring and certainly adaptable to a lesser scale than her own. We can learn from these photographs. The recipes are hearty, easily followed, and particularly appropriate for less formal dining and buffets. I would, however limit the overdose of mixed herbs in the shrimp and bean soup to one combined tablespoon). At the end of the book, in the Details appendix, are small inset photographs of table setting paraphernalia. This section could be very helpful as a reference guide to table setting know-how in general. I found this book to be a culmination of Roehm's Four Seasons Notebooks, but it is still different enough,informative enough to warrant adding to your collection. At Home with Carolyne Roehm is one of my choices for this season's gift giving since it's all about the love and warmth of home and hearth. I cannot imagine a more beautiful book. At least until Roehm's next book is published.

Visually Stunning

Once again,the statuesque Carolyne Roehm has dazzled us with a sumptuous collection of words and images creating a world in which we want to live now. Her touch is at once delicate and confidently bold in her use of color,groupings of furniture, objets and recipes.Her style is not at all derivative,but conveys vast knowledge of not only the art of living well, but how to really enjoy life. Regardless of the amount of money spent, these are ideas, not merely pretty pictures. Hopefully Carolyne will treat us to more of her world with additional peeks onto her lush life.
