That said, my wish list of design books is getting out of hand in a major way, so I'm going to have to cross some off the list soon. I thought I would share what I'm craving with you. Do you have any of these or are there other books not on my radar worth checking out? Let me know!
The title of this book says it all. A Perfectly Kept House Is The Sign Of A Misspent Life by Mary Randolph Carter is a breath of fresh air. The book explores the beauty in an unkempt house, and how life's little imperfections collide into a warm and passionate living space. And let's face it...as much as we would all love to have a maid to keep our homes looking like the pages of a design magazine, that just isn't life. And anyway, it further justifies the stack of laundry piled up on my dining table right now.
Quiet Living: Unique Country Interiors is a recent addition to my book wish list. This book explores the interiors of several country estates throughout Europe and looks absolutely charming. Although my home right now is more mid-century than country, I have always admired the simplicity of country homes and even the lifestyle that often comes with it. In another life, or maybe when I turn 40, I will have my own homestead with lots of chickens, lambs, and llamas running about.
Be sure to check out these books, and remember to let me know in the comment section below if I should add others to my list!
