New Design Books (to me at least)

Always on the look out for design books I haven't seen before, I've added two to my collection that I really like - Dream Homes and More Dream Homes. Written by Andreas von Einsiedel and Johanna Thornycraft, each book contains over 800 photographs of interiors, mostly from Europe. A far range of styles are featured, from classic, eclectic, country, contemporary and opulent, so as long as you're not wedded to one aesthetic you're likely to find many interiors that appeal to you. The photos in this post are ones I've taken from the first book, Dream Homes. All photography by Andreas von Einsiedel. They also have a new book coming out, Dream Rooms, release date not published yet.

Oooh, these look like good ones. The bedroom from Dream Rooms really does look dreamy, doesn't it?

Those look promising! I followed your (and Mrs. Moss') lead on doing a post about donating to UNICEF of another reputable organization to help the people of Haiti - it's just so awful...

Hello, from the West Coast to the East Coast-


Your book selection if very fresh.

I must look them up.

Thank you for your recommendation. Missed them and the photography is unfussy and direct. Always great to get new inspiration and ideas. Design is constant education and learning.

cheers, DIANE
