For my last day of favourites, I chose to feature my favourite books :) I love to read. Give me a good book, a big cup of tea, and a warm fire with some snow outside and I'm a happy camper! And interior design books are some of my favourites. My collection is still kinda small, but I'm sure it won't take long to build!
( Links below books lead to source of images & place to purchase! )
One of my favourites is a book that needs no introduction. Domino: The Book of Decorating by the editors of the now extinct Domino magazine is a gorgeous book of tips and tricks and beautiful rooms.
Next up is Downtown Chic by Robert & Cortney Novogratz. This book documents the houses they have renovated and designed with beautiful photos and lots of information from Cortney about what they learned along the way.
Style and Substance: The Best of Elle Decor is a beautiful book filled with beautiful rooms. It's divided up into different rooms in the home, with a few tips for each room, but mainly just photos. It's great for inspiration, but not if you want a book to tell you how to achieve a certain look.
My mom found Bazaar Style for me in Winners for $6 the other day :) I haven't had a chance to go fully through it yet but from my few flips through it, it's another pretty book with some tips on what to do with vintage & flea market finds. Lots of great inspiration.
All of the books from here down are books that I do not own, but are on my list to buy. So if you own them and have any thoughts, please share in the comments below! I found most of them through recommendations on Amazon, so I haven't actually flipped through them in a store.
Apartment Therapy's Big Book of Small, Cool Spaces looks like a great inspirational book with some tips and tricks for small spaces. I currently live in a tiny apartment with my roommate, so small space advice is always good haha
I love me some bright colour in a space! And Jonathan Adler is pretty well known for his use of bold, bright colours, so whats not to love? From what I can gather, it offers advice and ideas on different colour schemes throughout the home. Sounds good to me :)
It's called Glamour: Making it Modern. That's pretty much why it made it onto the list haha I imagine it to be full of gorgeous inspiration to make your home a little more glamorous!
This book just kept popping up in my recommendations on Amazon, so I figured I should add it. Can always use more inspiration :) And it has 'nest' in the title, which makes me think of cozy & warm places. Cozy and warm are always good adjectives for a room haha
I believe The Selby is in Your Place is a book of pretty people in pretty rooms? Sounds good to me!
This is another one that just kept popping up in my recommendations on Amazon, and I'm not sure if I will ever buy it, but the pretty cover promises pretty pictures inside :)
Jonathan Adler's other Happy Chic book. I think I'm more inclined to buy the Colours one, but accessories are always fun :)
I don't know who Kelly Wearstler is, but it's called Hue, so I'm imagining a book about colour. I like colour, so I think I'd like this book :)
For some reason, I keep thinking this is by a Canadian author, but I really have no idea if it is or not haha But look at that cover. If that doesn't scream BUY ME, I don't know what does!
Ok, so I may love all things UK, especially their home design. The English Home
is a gorgeous magazine that my grandma gets, and I love looking at the new issue whenever I visit. This book has no relations to The English Home other than it looks like a book of gorgeous English homes haha
I feel like Alexa Hampton is a somebody in the design world, but I can't remember where I've heard her name before. Again, gorgeous cover promises a gorgeous book. Can I really go wrong here? haha
Vincent Wolf is a name I know I've seen recently on several blogs with his gorgeous interiors, so a whole book of them seems like a buy in my opinion :)
Mmmm...next to the UK, French style is one of my favourites! Gigantic fireplace + massive chandelier + white/neutral colour scheme = I need to buy haha
Lastly, a book that hasn't even been published yet! Haha there wasn't much on Amazon about this book, but I for one am not a fan of fussy, 'done' interiors (do you know what I mean?) so I think this book could make for a great read!
And that is all I have for the moment! If you have read any of these or any other similar ones that you think I should know about, please let me know and I shall add them to the list :)
