I am legitimately addicted to books. There will come a day when I will run out of room for them and I guess that will mean that I will need to think about buying a bigger house! I am half kidding, but I have always been fascinated by beautiful books. One of my favorite memories from my childhood is of my mom taking me to the public library every couple of weeks. I would peruse the shelves and fill up my big canvas bag with books upon books to devour at home. When I was growing up, I knew that as an adult, I would be happy if I had two simple things: a house filled with books and the ability to travel often. I am grateful to say that I have both.
The thing about addictions is that you always want more, so I am always thinking about the next place to visit, and I am constantly ordering books online. This fall promises to be quite fruitful in terms of inspiring new books in the design, fashion, and entertaining categories. I am planning to order so many wonderful new titles including the first book from one of my favorite design firms, Carrier and Company: Positively Chic Interiors; Parish-Hadley Tree of Life by Brian McCarthy which chronicles the legacy of one of the most legendary firms in the history of the design industry; and my dear friend, Lauren Liess’ first book, Habitat: A Field Guide to Decorating, which is a beautiful and unique take on decorating with meaning. There are so many titles that will be released this fall that I cannot wait to get my hands on! What will you be reading this fall?
