In honor of October being National Book Month, I'm sharing my favorite books and have moved into the realm of books for adults. Or very precocious children.
It rained here last night, which was lovely, but seems to have triggered some cold/allergy symptoms that have left me feeling a bit beaten up this morning. I'm going to forego my usual wordiness and leave you with the following pictures of one of my favorite design books. I have eclectic tastes and these interiors reflect that. Some fantastic tile work in here, too. Click images for bigger version.
