Favourite Books of 2011

Good evening!

There are so many beautiful design & decor books out there, it can be hard to know what ones to buy first! My collection of them isn't too big yet, but the ones I have I adore!

I received The Perfectly Imperfect Home from my mom for Christmas and I devoured it the same day. I adore the illustrations, the chapter titles, the way Deborah Needleman writes, it's all so fabulous. You MUST buy this if you don't have it already!

Buy it on Amazon / Chapters
I've been a follower of Design*Sponge for several years now, so when I first heard about the book I knew it was going to be good! If you love the site, you will love this book!

I admired this book from afar at Chapters, the $80 price tag scaring me off. But when I found it for $20 at Winners of all places, there was no way it wasn't coming home with me :) This book is filled with beautiful images and fascinating histories. If you've ever admired a beautifully made chair, this one is for you!

I think this book has achieved classic status. If you look hard enough, you can spot it in almost every design lover's book pile. I adore the way it's laid out and the design of the book itself is beautiful. Full of inspiration, it is wonderfully written and crafted.

I received this book for Christmas last year, and tore through it. I love the Novogratz's style, and this book shows you each of the fantastic homes they've created throughout the years. If you enjoy the Novogratz, you will love this book!

Buy it on Amazon / Chapters
And no book list would be complete without a little wishlist too :) On mine currently are Decorate, by Holly Becker & Joanna Copestick, and Black & White, by Celerie Kimble. And I'm also excited to see what John & Sherry from Young House Love come up with for their book, out next fall I believe!

Do you have a favourite that's not on this list?? I love discovering new ones :)
