God you have fabulous taste in books.

Of course, I knew that the second I cracked open my copy of Creative Space.

Let me be the first to lower the level of discourse by saying, "That's what she said!" ;)

Design Darling said...

so jealous! somebody's been judging books by their covers because these are all beautiful choices!

nkp said...

Shut up. All of them? Really? Did you come into a sizeable inheritance? I want a few of these so badly. Well, actually, all of them. Jealous.

I have about half of these and I want the other half. I put a hold on any more book purchases with the move and all but I'm about ready to put a big order in myself. It's like Christmas when those Amazon boxes arrive, isn't it?

I too have Hue and Elle Decor's Style and Substance on the way from Amazon.
Wasn't fussed on Elle Decor's So Chic.
Would love to see your reviews of these books.

hello gorgeous said...

Okay, doll, I must know why you suckin' up to the Wearstler so.

My fave of those is Vogue Living. I haven't seen the Jamie Hayden book yet?! I don't know anything about it.

Love both Elles, too. I can't believe I don't have them yet and was eyeing them again this week. I bought Dressing the Home instead which is awesome. Sorry Margaret Russell. I really do heart you.

Jamie said...

Gonna have to add a few of those to my wish list. Thanks for sharing!

Design Darling - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

NKP - A sizeable tax refund actually. Last year's overseas moving expenses and such.

Ally - So true. Or a book for each night of Hanukkah.

Sandy K - I will endeavor to do so!

HG - I've changed my tune on Wearstler ever since she left Hollywood Regency behind and embraced a late 1970s/early 1980s vibe. Love it!

my favorite and my best said...

amy @ switz~art said...

The book I'm coveting most right now is "The Private World of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berg"; it's beautifully shot and brimming with THE most fabulous decorative arts. I'm also holding out for Alessandra Branca's New Classic Interiors -- dee-lish!

Raina Cox said...

ChrisToronto - I've been ogling the YSL one too. It might have to go on my next order. Off to check out the other you've recommended...
