Happy Friday! I’m so glad it’s almost the weekend around here. We’ve got some fun planned this weekend and hopefully some downtime, too!
It’s Friday Favorites time and I thought I’d share some of my favorite design books as well as the LONG list of books that are on my wish list! I love books. I would have a whole room lined with bookshelves if I could. We often walk around our house thinking where we could add a wall or two of built-ins to house our ever growing collection of books.
I also love to accessorize with books. Books are always an easy, colorful way to add your personality and interests into a room. If you get some great sized coffee table books, they can fill up a coffee table or console table perfectly. I always tell clients to head to the Barne’s and Noble “Bargin Books” section to find some inexpensive, beautiful books for their home. Usually they are very well priced and you can get some unique and beautiful books!
I also love that this is called Habitat: The Field Guide because it reminds me of my oldest son. We were recently reading a wonderful book, How to Behave and Why, and he goes “It’s like a field guide for being good!” Yes! I love it! We have many of the National Audubon Society Field Guides for North American animals which is very interesting to my boys. This would be my version! It comes out soon and I can’t wait to order it.
There has been a lot of talk about Eddie Ross’ new book on social media, and it’s definitely going on my wish list. This would make a beautiful coffee table book but it also has so many inspiring ideas inside!
