These are 3 on my list of many.
Style and Substance- The Best of Elle Decor by Margaret Russell
Home Rules by Nate Berkus
French Essence by Vicki Archer
Somehow in all of the clutter on my desk, the doc found the list. He chose the above 3 to give to me for Christmas. Yay! Maybe I should leave more lists lying around.
I love the smell of crisp pages opened up for the first time. Photos of beautiful design are like pure candy to me!
These are some of the images in this book.
And from French Essence-
Somehow my stacked books and papers never look this artistic.
I once heard a man say he studied his wife like a book and after 40 years of marriage felt he hadn't even graduated college yet. Paying attention to little details, like comments made in passing or scribbled lists, is one of the best ways to "study" our mates, our children and friends.
One of my goals this year is to hear the unspoken from those I love.
