The traditional living room has increasingly given way to the idea of a “great room”–a space adaptable enough to entertain guests, encourage playful children, provide a comfortable place to view videos, and, yes, even accommodate the solitary reader. Pottery Barn Living Rooms leads such a reader through the basic issues and specific choices available to anyone wanting to re-do an existing space or design a new living room. Each of its ten chapters is devoted a specific subject (color, texture, lighting); all chapters begin with an overview of the topic, followed by virtual tours of rooms–both large and smaller, formal and casualcomplete with gorgeous photos. The accompanying text goes on to explain how the real-life owners of these rooms created a sense of intimacy, a dramatic effect with lighting, or a convivial place in which people are likely to congregate. Whether you have high ceilings or low, a large budget or a limited one, this book is valuable for anyone looking for sensible ideas in creating a room perfect for all kinds of living. –David Bombeck
