Comfort is the essential element of a successful interior and the hallmark of the Parish-Hadley style. In Sister Parish Design, Libby Cameron, Sister’s last protégé, and Susan B. Crater, Sister’s granddaughter, explore this aspect and much more in a series of conversations with the leading decorators of today. Sister Parish is the iconic American decorator of her generation. Her use of flowered chintzes and overstuffed armchairs combined with unexpected items, like patchwork quilts and painted furniture, is credited with popularizing what is known as American Country–style during the 1960s. Her passion for bold color and mixed patterns invoked charm, imagination, and a lived-in look to her rooms. Her philosophy was to be unafraid and to put things together because you liked them--not because they matched. Filled with beautifully-rendered watercolor illustrations, Sister Parish Design is more then just a stunning book—it is an inspirational resource that all decorating aficionados’ will want to add to their bookshelf.

Not really all about SIS Parish's work. Rather other top designers give views and often quips what Parish would have thought or said about design philosophy's . No photography but lovely color renderings of rooms or settings abound. Although I really enjoyed the book I was disappointed it was not all about her work and personality and her fabulous projects that are legend in our industry. Knowing this I might not have bought it but I am glad to have it. I bought it used very good and it was--looked brand new. One line in the entire book underlined (I think it was a person and not the writers "There is a world of difference between a room styled to be beautiful and a room that is actually decorated for living." That is the central theme of the book. It's implication that she wrote the book is deceptive however. So you know!

This is a book that really does not add anything to a knowledge of Mrs. Parish's design "philosophy". I believe that she was a brilliant but totally intuitive
designer who had a very good eye. The visual presentation of this book is washed-out, pale, and faded -- like the amateurish watercolor illustrations by a Ms. Bland (!). Some of the watercolors are painted from well-known photographs (Mrs. Astor's library by Mr. Hadley, p.122). Wouldn't it have been better to show the vibrant red scheme in a photograph? And what of the terrible "bar set up on an antique desk"on p. 14? Why is this awful sketch in the book? Mrs. Parrish's memory certainly deserves something better
than this mish-mash!

The title of the book refers to the name of a fabric and wallpaper company, not to the work of legendary designer Mrs Henry "Sister" Parish, II. The authors, one the grand-daughter of, and the other, the former assistant to, the late decorator, developed this book as a clever promotion for their business venture, Sister Parish Design. With contributions from 25 decorators, including Albert Hadley and Bunny Williams, and magazine editiors, such as Mitchell Owens and Carolyn Englefield, various comments are grouped together in chapters and sub-chapters as a chatty how-to book of sorts, for lack of a better description.

There is a Forward by Albert Hadley and an Introduction in three parts by each of the authors and the illustrator. The chapters are Our Rooms, Beginnings, Elements, Furniture, Color, Materials & Textures, Collections, Outdoor Rooms, and The Courage to Decorate. A section titled Recommended Reading lists two pages of books on interior design. The section, Contributors, gives a very brief and vague 3 or 4 line c.v. on the designers and editors. A one page Acknowledgement thanks those who helped with the book, ending with the woman they only refer to as Sister, who provided the inspiration, they say.

The watercolor illustrations are an odd sort by Mita Corsini Bland, wife of popular Manhattan art and antiques dealer Gerald Bland. Similar in style to those by the late interior designer Mark Hampton, they lack the benefit of his understanding of what best to show, however. Most are not illustrations of Mrs Parish's work, but rather a somewhat muddy assortment of the contributors' work. They apprear to be largely taken from snapshots because only details or corners of rooms are shown. The benefits of using drawings instead of photographs were not generally exploited here. The exception is the dustjacket, with the fabric on a prominent bergere in Mrs Parish's living room changed from her trademark chintz to a blue & white print from the authors' fabric line!

There are many typos and inaccuracies, too numerous and perhaps too tedious to list here. There has been some criticism that many of the contributors had never even met Sister Parish. But this reviewer does not agree; I never met the 16th century architect Andrea Palladio, but he has been a great inspiration to me!

This is not a bad book, and generally rather attractive. But many will be disappointed in most aspects of content. All except the most devoted fans of Sister Parish should just wait until the book is further discounted. The definitive book on Sister Parish remains to be written.

Definitely a 5 star rating! An introspective look into the interior design field with commentary by it's greatest proponents and practioners: Bunny Williams, Albert Haddley, Peter Dunham et al in an almost round table exchange.
