Design Books

Every year there are at least three design books on my official Christmas wish list. And it takes me a while to narrow down to my most-desired. But I thought I'd share a few titles I'm lusting after, as well as a list of my already-owned favorites. So you can add them to your list too! I'm saving this post for coffee-table style interior design books - I could probably do another just about fashion books and yet another round-up of more practical design guide books... someday!

What I'm wishing for (or aiming to buy with Christmas money!)...

Charlotte Moss: A Visual Life

American Beauty

Parish Hadley: Sixty Years of American Design

Sister Parish Design: On Decorating

Katie Ridder Rooms

The Big Book of Chic

Black and White (and a Bit in Between)

Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens, People

David Hicks: Designer

Domestic Art: Curated Interiors


And here are some titles that every design lover should own.

Elle Decor: So Chic

American Modern

Domino: The Book of Decorating

Mark Hampton on Decorating

The Perfectly Imperfect Home



Any other suggestions for me? Now that we're putting in those new shelves I'll have plenty of space!
