Feeling Bookish...


Any room loaded with books almost instantly becomes one of my favorite spots. There's just something about the look and feel of a library that makes me supremely happy!


So you can imagine my delight when my amazing designer friend, Sam, shared this NYT article about carefully curated high design book collections.


Thatcher Wine, who runs the amazing Juniper Books which specializes in handpicked collections for libraries, really blew me away... talk about a dream job!

I have pretty books on my mind today, too. Hope you'll stop by, TG, and add your choice of a beautiful book you love to Style Maniac's winter Readers Choice, the Coffee Table Edition.

My husband forwarded me the same article! I love that he uses mass market books like Danielle Steel and John Grisham to fill libraries that are just for "show!"

TG--I knew you'd have great choices! That "Vintage Cocktails" is going on my personal Amazon Wishlist! Thanks for contributing.

Navy Bean - I would LOVE to read a trashy Steele novel while in some super swank spa! Prippys love a good high -low pairing.

Style Maniac - Glad you liked my pics! Excited to see all of the recs.
