This is a warning – I just got a new camera. . . a Canon Rebel T1i, so there will be even more pictures posted on this blog! I am pretty ecstatic – I didn’t think that we’d be able to get a new camera for a long time, but we needed a new wide format/thick paper-ready printer, so we looked around. . .and found an amazing deal for both a (n amazing) camera and a professional-quality printer! So, I think that our business will be more able to grow with our new tools!
Without further ado: Here are just a few of my favourite design books:
One of our shelves on one of our Norrebo bookcases. . .with a few of our design/architecture books. Now that I have a camera that works well, I’ll be posting about these books and more, in the coming months. I’ll be saving a bunch of them for next year’s Being Homey event, too.
This is one book that is actually 2 books – Sarah Susanka‘s The Not so Big House and also Creating the Not so Big House. All of Susanka’s books are written with size, or lack of size in mind. She discusses ways in which one can design even the smallest place efficiently, ways to take advantage of any area for storage, and so much more. You can take a look at the full selection of her books here.
For me, even the places that Susanka considers to be small, seem overly large to me – but then, I have always lived in an apartment or townhouse – other than just a few years of my life, in my mom’s house, which is about 2400 sq ft. or so.
I love the look of these old Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) blankets on these chairs.
I do love Susanka’s suggestions on making the most of every space, as seen above. Love these quotes strewn throughout Susanka’s books!
