While I enjoyed aspects of the overall design sense and some of the DIYs were interesting, it took some serious effort not to eye roll every time one of the hipster chic sisters appeared, posed to perfection, with plasti-dip smiles in place. I could have done without the "look at us, we're so cool" vibe that practically drips off of the pages they are featured in. It really detracted from my enjoyment of the book; I don't want to see the authors, owners, animals or kids, the interiors and DIYs should be able to stand on their own merit.
