Design Books to Inspire

I love books.  I always will.  I love the smell of them, the feel of them in my hands and I love the sense of security knowing that I have inspiration at my fingertips, no matter if my computer is plugged in or my iPad is charged.  

I think my favorite books are design books.  I love the oversized pictures and stories that explain how or why a creative made such a beautiful room, took a beautiful shot or painted something unforgettable.  I also love to stack them on cocktail tables and my clients will agree, that I also style their homes with some of my favorite design books! 

Below are just a few books that have inspired me, and other design professionals.  Some..I own..others are on my wish list as they are not yet released but I know they will be fantastic.  Enjoy!
