If you don’t follow William McLure, please start. He is an incredible talent. I follow him on Instagram, and love doing so. (He’s a fun one to follow as you feel like you really know him….) There aren’t many things I love more than finding people in this industry who are so incredibly talented and pouring over their work.
2. New design/inspiration books
I have all of these books in my cart on Amazon right now. Most of them are pre-order, which I love doing because I usually forget about ordering them, which makes for a nice surprise when they arrive.
I’m a huge fan of Rebecca Atwood’s textiles, so I know this will be a good read. It seems like all of the big bloggers/designers are helping Rebecca promote her book, which makes me want her book even more.
Oh man, so excited about this one. Grace Bonney is coming to Austin in Oct and I bought tickets to see her. I think we receive a signed copy of her new book, In the Company of Women, at the event. Love me some Grace Bonney and really excited to be inspired by her book.
3 – Foraged Flora
This book is in my Amazon cart for the cover alone. How moody yummy are those florals…..
4 – Domino
Duh…. I have their first book and will definitely have the second.
5 – Design Wise
I saw Vern Yip on Kelly (morning talkshow that used to be Kelly & Michael / Regis & Kelley, so weird just calling it “Kelly” now, ANYWAY), he was so great on the show that I decided I needed his book. It seems like it’s a great decorating guide with lots of measurements/tips to note like “distance from coffee table to sofa”, “height to hang chandelier”, etc.
A pretty coffee table book….
7 – Slim Aarons
Another one that I chose purely for the cover, although I’m sure the book is amazing as well.
8 – Beautiful
SO EXCITED to get this one in my hands. Love Mark Sikes.
3. Nate Berkus’ New Line for Target
As expected, Nate Berkus killed his new fall line for Target…. That rattan stool………….
If you love loud prints, please go to Clarence House’s website, look at every single pattern/wallpaper, and thank me later. Just incredible, and I have dreams of using so many prints right now.
A few days ago I bought the fall issue of Domino for the first time ever. I am not a magazine person, really just not a print person. It’s not that I dislike print inspiration, but I just never really think about it and can usually gather enough inspiration online. I typed all of that in present tense, but it should be in past because I all of the sudden have this urge to buy 25 design books and magazines and just flip through them and get inspired in a way that online inspiration cannot offer. Are you a print or online inspiration person? Or both?
