Flipping through design books is my secret trick for when I’m not sure what to do with a certain spot or feel like my creativity is running low. Just flipping through a design book can spark an idea. Or inspire me to think of something to do in our farmhouse. I get asked all the time what I do when I’m in a creative slump… this is one of my go-to things! & if you missed the news, I wrote a book! Yes, that’s right. It comes out in September.. you can read more about it [HERE]. I actually avoided reading other design books while I was writing mine so that I wouldn’t be swayed one way or another while writing my own… but now that I’m done writing I’m back to reading all the design books! Even the books that aren’t my style can still give me SO MANY great ideas! Here are some of my favorites below, I hope this inspires you. Do you have any of these books or are any on your wishlist?
