wish list - new books

Sunday, September 29, 2013

I'm a wish list hoarder and it is disgusting. My Amazon wish list currently has over 400 items on it. I'm not elaborating in the least. But today I've added a few more titles:

Central Park NYC: An Architectural View by Bernd Dams and Andrew Zega

Mario Buatta: Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration by Mario Buatta

The Book of Fine Linen by Francoise De Bonneville and forward by Marc Porthault

And last but most assuredly not least: An Invitation to Chateau du Grand-Lucé: Decorating a Great French Country House by Timothy Corrigan with Eric Piasecki and Marc Kristal

When we arrived in Japan, one of our movers told me that I needed to get a big television because I had too many books and he was tired of carrying them up the stairs... He should see my wish list. So what's on your wish list?

Had a bit of a moment over the work of Thomas Jayne with a blogging friend. I thought we should share the photo that sparked it with the rest of the internet.

And more,

Having a lot of fun catching up with design friends in America. I have a few things planned in the upcoming weeks including a couple house tours, one American and one Japanese. See you soon!
