‘Tis the season for gift-giving and I am always happy to see a design book under the tree. For the design lover in your life, you really can’t go wrong giving them one as a gift OR a piece of art they’ve been eyeing for that matter! Am I right, design happy people out there? Well, art aside, today I wanted to help out and share my favorite design books and the ones I’ve been eyeing…hint, hint …if you have any last-minute gifts to grab for me.
All these books above I love and I have already. They all offer me something different and I love to flip through them. They also look pretty great on a coffee table, because books are decor too you know.

These books have been on my wish list for Christmas. I have pawed through a few of them at the bookstore. Yep, I am one of those people who goes to bookstores and sometimes just browses, OBNOXIOUS, I know! You will notice that when I say design books that also means from the world of fashion. I pull so much inspiration from fashion too, because, essentially, you are “dressing your home”. Design is design is design.

These are the books I want to know what’s inside! I love Chanel…hello! Black and White forever. And the rest of these I’ve seen the covers and I am oh so intrigued! They got to be good, right? Look at the covers…don’t judge a book by its cover…Well, I think they all look pretty darn good!
