From the Design Book of the Month...Celerie Kemble's To Your Taste.
If anyone noticed... I added a quote on my header. This is one of my favorites from a designer that I REALLY admire, Celerie Kemble. Whenever I am having a moment of design insecurity, (don't we all have these moments) I remember this quote.
"Don't let a fear of being tacky render you tasteless."
I surely don't want to be "rendered tasteless:) I think you do have to take risks in design...sometimes it is a huge payoff, and sometimes you think, ""oh dear, what was I THINKING!!!" But, how would you have known otherwise?
I also love design books, and I spend many a day at Barnes and Noble (in the kids section with my kids happily playing with the train table, and me with no less than 5 magazines and a few books) checking them out before I buy. I would like to beef up my design library, so I thought that doing a Design book of the month would be fun. (and little splurge for myself.) I will pull a favorite quote from my book of the month, and then do a post each week about the designer and their rooms.
Do you have any favorite design books that you would like to suggest?
Have a great Tuesday.
