Dreamy Design Books for Daydreaming

FullSizeRender-107.jpg

Last week I blogged about how difficult motherhood can be. I spoke on how being a parent is not only "hard work", but just plain hard, and confessed that I often use caramel as a stress-reliever. There are many things I do to unwind and most of them involve some sort of sitting/eating combination. I'm not one of those people who likes giving the stovetop grates a "really good scrub" to relax, nor am I an I-just-gotta-get-to-thegym kinda gal... So where does that leave me?? I need both the mindless relaxation, and I need the interests and outlets that get me recharged and re-inspired. As I've talk about before, design is something that energizes me. One thing I love to do is to go the public library and check out books that get me daydreaming. Both motherhood and life in general are more enjoyable for me when I find time to refeul my creativity. I'm definitely looking forward to sharing my love for design with my daughters as they get older. 

Below are five books by authors/bloggers I love or authors I've recently come across and I'll continue to keep an eye out for new titles as they come. I hope you enjoy the beautiful ideas and incredible photography! 


And by the way... what's your favorite style of home decor and interior design?? Any books you've loved looking through?
