Here is the truth: I suck at Halloween. I pretty much gloss over the whole event, and in our neck of the woods, we only get 6 or 7 trick or treaters, so that's easy enough to do! I will shower them with the little chocolate bars I've bought so I don't eat them all. My willpower is very poor these days, although I am a faithful visitor to my treadmill...
Anyway, come late fall I start looking around for a few books to ask for from the big man (Barry, no Santa, although they are interchangeable really). This year, three books top my list:
1) Modern Mix: Curating Personal Style with Chic & Accessible Finds by Eddie Ross
I follow Eddie on Instagram and I love him! And I have thumbed through this book at Chapters and I love, love, love what I've seen!
He has such an eye and he just bubbles with joie de vivre! This is an expensive book (in Canada) but worth every penny I think. I see this as a bit of a bible for the likes of me!
2) French Chic Living: Simple Ways to Make Your Home Beautiful by Florence de Dampierre
I just got back from France as you know and I still miss it. I adore France. And when I saw this book at my local book shop, I knew it would be on the top of my list this fall! This book is beautiful, from the pictures to the little "secrets" and tips. I swoon just looking at the cover....
3) House Beautiful's Pink
I am definitely in a pink mood these days. I adore the colour and used sparingly (or daringly!) it can be such a wonderful thing in a home!
To be honest, I did scan through Ellen DeGeneres' new style book, but it wasn't for me - too modern - although there are beautiful pictures and she definitely has great talent in renovating and decorating houses!
Finally, if you didn't buy it last year after I slagged it to death, Novel Interiors by Lisa Borgnes Giramonti still tops my list for a book that I turn to again and again and again!
How about you? Any home décor books on your wishlists this year? Do tell!
