Some Books I Own, Some on my List!

I LOVE books about design and art history and I thought I'd share a few of my faves with you. I recommend each and everyone of them :)  You can get them on Amazon, new and used!

Numero uno, India Hicks - Island Life. Her beauty and design are so inspiring!

Rachel Ashwell, Shabby Chic Interiors. The queen of Shabby Chic!

The Find, from the best thrift shop ever, Housing Works, NYC by Stan Williams and Charles King

Seashells by Josie Iselin - on my list!

Thrifty Chic by Liz Bauwens - took out from the local library and loved it!

Art History, Marilyn Stokstad - my bible in college!

I hope you like this selection of books - check them out for some inspiration at your library, buy them off amazon, or give them as gifts this Christmas to your design loving friends!
