Get Your House Right
I’ve always been a collector of books, but even more so since I’ve started studying Interior Design. Not only are there are tons of amazing design books out there, but there’s also a lot of inspiration books that I want as well. I’ve embarrassed to say that I’ve run out of room on my bookshelves and have resorted to coming up with clever ways of storing more and more books that I buy.
I easily have several hundred dollars worth of design books in my Amazon shopping cart at any given time–not that I ever go on a shopping splurge and buy them all at once. I periodically buy books, but mostly I just keep them in there to remember which books I want whenever I get the chance.
Ever since I started my internship, the list of books in my Amazon shopping cart has grown exponentially, but one book that I absolutely had to buy right away is called “Get Your House Right: Architectural Elements To Use and Avoid by Marianne Cusato (with a foreward by His Royal Highness, Prince Charles). Marianne is an architect in New York City who says we need to return to traditional architectural practices. What a really love about the book is all the correct and incorrect ways to use architectural details that so many architects/designers/builders don’t follow anymore. I can’t wait for it to arrive. You can read more about it on Amazon here.
