“One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures.”
-George W. Bush
Now who could disagree with that?
If there is one relaxing and indulgent activity I like to do on the weekends, it is leafing through my design and art books. Wouldn’t you love to be left to explore some of these libraries with their stacks and stacks of books? I know I would.
Iris Apfel’s Manhattan apartment.
I admit, this one IS a bit over the top with the stacking of books.
Miles Redd mixes books, art, and decorative objects.
Nigella Lawson among her bevy of cookbooks. If this was my library, I’m sure I’d never make it into the kitchen to cook anything!
John Stefanidis mixes dining with reading… so cozy and perfect for those times when you just can’t put a book down.
Another thing I’ve been incessantly reading through in every free second this weekend is the blog A Lovely Being and her tumblr page Fallon Elizabeth. It’s total eye candy. Every picture I’ve posted came from one of those with the exception of the last one.
