Current Wish List: Books

{Mary McDonald Interiors}

With my birthday coming up in a few weeks, I have had a few friends and family members ask what to get me for my birthday. I never really know what to say when people ask me that, but I’ll tell you what two things I can never have enough of: beautiful stationery and inspiring books. While there are endless options for beautiful stationery, there are a few books that are currently calling my name. The first, Mary McDonald Interiors (above) is the just-released tome by one of my favorite designers. I can’t wait to get my hands on this book!

{HUE by Kelly Wearstler}

The first edition of Kelly Wearstler’s newest book, HUE sold out and yours truly missed out. A new limited edition is set to be released on November 1st, three days before my birthday.

{Rooms to Inspire in the City by Annie Kelly}

I’ve had this book on my wish list for some time now. It features such a great mix of styles.

{Alberto Pinto Table Settings}

Sometimes, looking at beautiful table settings can be just as fun as creating them. Alberto Pinto’s book is filled with sumptuous and elegant table settings.

{Women Then: Photographs 1954-1969 by Julia Morton}

There is something so glamorous about women of past generations. The majority of people no longer treat dressing themselves with the same care and formality that was common until the end of the 1960s. It would be so fun to go through this book and find inspiration from the chic women of the 1950s and 60s.

{Ina’s New Book, How Easy is That?}

Lastly, my favorite food personality, Ina Garten has a new book coming out this month called “How Easy is That?” in which she shares easy to prepare, fabulous meals in the true Barefoot Contessa style.
