Sage Living: Decorate for the Life You Want Reviews

  • Amanda Carron

    A decorating book that makes sense to me!

  • Ashley

    I love the format of this book! As far as interior content, it’s a tad dated but still a good read.

  • Rebecca

    I like the idea of "decorating for the life you want," although some of the examples were hard to relate to. ("Meagan also knew that she wanted to live alone for the first time in her life, no matter how prohibitive her budget as a single freelancer...she secured a three-hundred-square foot apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side." Really?)

    I liked how the contents were divided, especially "Connect: The Living Room" and "Disconnect: The Bedroom."

    I liked how the contents were divided, especially "Connect: The Living Room" and "Disconnect: The Bedroom."

    Fun idea: "Mimic the indulgences of hotel living in your own bedroom. Mount a hook for a plush robe behind the door, add two extra pillows to the mix for sitting up and reading, and seek out no-wrinkle sheets for that crisp hotel feel."

  • Siddhi B

    Filled with beautiful photos and stories, this book gave me a lot of home deco ideas. Looking forward to reading more stuff by the author.

  • Stella

    mostly just pretty pictures

  • Lisa

    Inspiration and Design book. Not really what I was looking for but all in all it was an alright book.

  • Lauren Read

    A refreshing, inspiring look at others' abodes, with thoughtful explanations and accessible suggestions on applying concepts to one's own situation.

  • Jenny

    I wasn't as impressed by the text of the book as I was the photos. Visually, it's awfully pretty.

  • Beth

    If you like Anne Sage's style and want her life, then this book will likely please you more than it did me. Possibly if you are in your twenties and haven't ever thought about the hows and whys of putting together your own living space, this book might inspire you. But for middle aged me, all of the suggestions were the sort you might expect in a magazine article--that is, nothing that was all that insightful or gave me a new lens through which to look and with little detail.

    If you like Anne Sage's style and want her life, then this book will likely please you more than it did me. Possibly if you are in your twenties and haven't ever thought about the hows and whys of putting together your own living space, this book might inspire you. But for middle aged me, all of the suggestions were the sort you might expect in a magazine article--that is, nothing that was all that insightful or gave me a new lens through which to look and with little detail. Photos of the homes of various featured creative types were sparse, features were described but not shown, and most disturbing, virtually all looked identical: white walls, a piece of mid-century modern furniture, and in nearly every spread, an animal skull of some sort, usually with horns. It struck me as I read that if you spun the inhabitants around ten times (blindfolded) and dumped them into one of the other homes featured in the book, it would take them days to notice they weren't in their own space.

    If you love this style (and animal skulls!) then this book might be all you dreamed of, but I was dreaming of something a little more unique and ideas that would encourage me to alter my current living space in a way that would help me achieve some creative and professional goals.

    This book is so very, incredibly hipster. If you want to have an aesthetic that is very much urban outfitters meets poor starving artist in Brooklyn, it might be just for you.

    Otherwise, spare yourself! ;)
