A house is just an empty shell until we make it a home by filling it with color, furnishings, art and special objects that have meaning for us.
Through thoughtful placement of these, we build an environment that enriches us, provides sanctuary and also one that is welcoming to others. They feel it as soon as they enter our space.
I’ll be sharing a number of books with you that I have found helpful in learning about design and color— more importantly they inspired me to think about interiors in a new way.
I have all of the books I’ll be recommending in my own library and I hope you will find them as inspiring as I have.
I welcome your feedback and any recommendations you have for similar finds. You can also send me your color and design questions for me to answer in an upcoming issue of Six Elements News.
Whenever you’re looking for an inspiring book, just click on the category “Decorating and Color Books” in the column on the right and you’ll see a list of posts on each book in the collection. When you click on any title you can read my summary, see a cover design and find links to order online from amazon.com and amazon.ca.
