So Sarah Nettleton is preaching to the choir when she writes about "The Simple Home. We know that simplicity sells in today's fast-paced environment, that simple homes are more flexible, thriftier, more timeless, more sustainable. Yes, Sarah, simple is enough.

So Sarah Nettleton is preaching to the choir when she writes about "The Simple Home. Ultimately, the authorpoints out, it's not the items we place in our homes that bring us joy, but the ambiance we create there. Serenity lies not in architectural design or decorative style, but in the peace we feel when our surroundings suit us. And that's a simple but profound lesson indeed.

Books by Sarah Nettleton. The Simple Home: The Luxury of Enough (American Institute Architects).

The Simple Home book. It is unoriginal, uninspired. Nettleton gives a summary definition of a simple home (a good start), and then examples follow in subsequent chapters. I didn't find very many of the houses to be all that simple or practical, and aspects of the featured designs still seemed luxurious to me. The title and cover are misleading.

The journal of the American Institute of Architects . Architect Sarah Nettleton, AIA, LEED AP, believes in the simple approach to life and to solving problems. In her view, whiz-bang technology is no substitute for common-sense techniques that promote energy efficiency. The clients had read Nettleton’s book, The Simple Home: The Luxury of Enough (Taunton Press), and wanted a modern farmhouse that incorporated some of her design concepts and sustainable strategies. Rather than relying on pricey mechanical equipment, the architect used the land and orientation to optimize natural daylight and ventilation.

Decent book for serious anti junk program. If you are looking more and more like a budding house stuffer. You can get some ideas here.

Coffee table book. ... The reviews are better than the book. Did not learn a thing. Not worth the price.

Timeless homes, wonderful decorating ideas. You will want to keep it. More words requested? Blah blah blah blah blah blah

This is an average book, I wouldn't buy again - it does go through elements to consider when designing a simple home but was uninspiring.

This book is amazing! The pictures are great, and so well coordinated with the text that the reader can truly "see" each house. For anyone dreaming of a second home, or a more efficient first home, this is an ideal volume.

I adore this book. I am a professional organizer and it really speaks to me and my clients about downsizing and the privilege it is to have a home that is uncluttered and 'just enough'. Thank you for a wonderful book.

I like this book, it was in perfect condition even though it was used. I stll have it out on table and everyone enjoys it very much. It encourages me to buy used!
This is an absurd, but very American, architecture book. Usually with this genre the glossy pictures make up for the text -- that is NOT the case here. The pictures are very average. The text is okay ... a gospel of architectural $implicity substituted for actual ... well ... simplicity.

Here's the thing: simplicity in this book is interpreted as minimalist furnishings. Well and good. But it is easy to relish the zen luxe of a room when one has the most wonderful architecture to surround that perfect, single $10K furnishing. It is easy to be "simple".... own few possessions and buy few furnishings when you can afford a house designed with built in window seats, dining nooks, stainless appliances and murphy beds.

What is really needed is a guide to designing with simplicity and sustainability in mind. That would be .... you buy some nasty tract home for $300K in Redmond Washington and want to decorate / design sustainably, simply, tastefully and, above all, peacefully.

Probably the most amusing thing about Sarah Nettleton's book is the secret glimpses into the homeowner's stuff: forests of books, cotton fields of clothes, acres of wood cabinetry, and pits of stone and concrete tile and countertops.

My hard earned ducats bought this book. Don't use yours.
