simple is beautiful

Two Books

Tuesday, July 13, 2010



A few months ago, I reserved House Beautiful, Colors For Your Home from our local library. 
I shared this book with my mother-in-law during her most recent visit. 

Several days after her departure, a little box arrived containing the two books pictured above. 
I'm sure you design experts already have these treasures in your stash, but for us common folk, these are a must have.  

There is so much useful information that even with passing trends, I'm sure they both will provide inspiration for years to come.

Thanks Kathy!

If you are interested, you can find the books here and here.

  2. That's so nice of her. I have the colors book and it's great. The best part is reading how the designers use the individual colors. Enjoy!

  4. You'll definitely put them to good use! I bought my HB favorite paint colors a month ago and it is already pretty tattered. Actually, just posted about it in today's post! I want to get the fabric one - I hope it's as good as the paint one.
