New Books!!!

There are a few new design books that are coming out soon that I cannot wait to see, read and spend time with stretched out on my bed with a warm cup of tea steaming by my side.

Getting a new design book anytime of the year is like Christmas for me.  It’s all I need to make me happy in that moment.  After all, it’s the little moments that matter, right?

So, without further adieu, I give you some titles that might interest you as well!

 

The Nest Home Design Handbook: Simple ways to decorate, organize, and personalize your place' target=_blank>The Nest Home Design Handbook

Simple ways to decorate, organize, and personalize your place

Written by Carley Roney, who is the woman responsible for all of “The Knot” wedding books and magazines.  This book looks fresh, fun and full of ideas.  The comments posted on Amazon already give it a glowing review.  It’s going in my cart!

 

New Asian Interiors (Stylecity)' target=_blank>New Asian Interiors  by Massimo Listri.  This book has not yet been released, but the description says that it has over 400 beautiful color photographs of homes in Japan, China, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Malaysia to Singapore, Indonesia, Java, and Bali.  With my growing fascination with feng shui design, this book is sure to be a winner.

 

Casa California: Spanish-Style Houses from Santa Barbara to San Clemente

This book has actually been published for awhile, but it’s new to me.  And I love the Spanish style, as you will see from the next book selection, so it made the list! :)

 

Spanish Interior Design' target=_blank>Spanish Interior Design by Michelle Gallindo

This is one of my favorite design styles, so this is the book that I am most looking forward to.  The book features 50 designs in a variety of categories.

 

Living in Style: Paris' target=_blank>Living in Style Paris  by Reto Guntli (photographer).

Having just returned from Paris a few months ago, it would be fascinating to see a fresh take on this style.  It is interesting how the cover has a strong Asian influence.

 

Paula Deen's Savannah Style

Paula Deen’s Savannah Style.  The queen of Southern cooking has an interior design book out!  Go figure!  But, I’ll be the first in line to buy it!  There is something so warm and fun about this lady, that I’m sure her new venture is going to be a wild success.

By Paula Deen and Brando Branch.

 

Lars Bolander's Scandinavian Design

Lars Bolander's Scandinavian Design


Heather Smith MacIsaac (Author), Staffa Johansson (Photographer), Ake Eson Lindman (Photographer), Lars Ranek (Photographer) and Solvi dos Santos (Photographer)


Broken down by room chapters, this style exemplifies simplicity at it’s best.

Live while you are alive



Learn to be what you are in the seed of your spirit



Learn to free yourself from all things that have molded you



And which limit your secret and undiscovered road…



Never forget that love requires that you be



The greatest person you are capable of being



Self-generating and strong and gentle-



Your own hero and star



Be grateful for life as you live it



And may a wonderful light



Always guide you along the unfolding road.
