A little light Christmas reading...

One of my favorite things to do over the Christmas holiday season is to devour my new design books that my friends and family have gifted to me. Somehow every year I manage to fill my wish list with new design books, I have already refilled it!


Here are a few that any design savvy coffee table must have:

Black and White (and a Bit in Between): Timeless Interiors, Dramatic Accents, and Stylish Collections
By Celerie Kemble
$35.74 (amazon.ca)

This fantastic book is a favorite of mine, the pages feature beautiful and elegant black and white interiors. It disproves the belief that black & white interiors are dark, cold and clinical by featuring spectacular spaces. Plus the spectacular Canadian Tommy Smythe's home is featured.

The title really says it all, the books pages are filled with the best and most beautiful works of the Texan interior designer Jan Showers.

Thad Hayes: The Tailored Interior

Thad is an inspiring New York interior designer who makes uniquely simple interiors that feel warm, livable and inspiring all at once. His spaces are keenly edited yet accurately reflect the homeowners personality.


Mary McDonald: Interiors: The Allure of Style

Mary McDonald became mainstream when she starred on Bravo's Million Dollar Decorators but her inspired and cheeky interiors have earned her place on my bookshelf. There is something old Hollywood about her designs. Gilt, glamour and lacquer are prevalent yet well balanced in a cool glamorours manner. All of her rooms feature black accents that ground her luxe spaces.
