I’ve been decorating (well, unpacking and trying to do some decorating) in my new place. I have a very specific vibe, and I know that decorating is very personal. You can actually tell a lot about a person by how their home looks. What pictures are they showing? What color palette do they use? Is everything store bought, or are some things homemade? Does everything match, or is there a mix of styles, colors, and textures? Are there pillows all lined up just so, or is there a lived in feel?
I tend towards the lived-in, mixed & matched (store bought/vintage/handmade), and earth toned. Some of the decorating books that I could look at a thousand times without getting sick of are below. I never use any to tell me exactly what to do, but I get inspiration from them. Do you have favorite decorating books; even the ones that you stop and look at each time you’re in the bookstore?
By the way, over at BookRiot today I’m talking about decorating a baby/child’s space in a bookish, creative way. Check it out! (Link will be live at 6:15 am PST).
