Design Books around $30 or Less

Every so often I like to check out the prices on great design books, typically of ones I don't have yet.  Today my goal was to find books that were around $30 or less (both with the new and used prices) and have the Look Inside feature. 
 BTW, I love that and wish every design book on Amazon offered it.  For me, it makes the difference of whether I'll buy a book or not.  So here's my list this round:   First up,   Houses with Charm: Simple Southern Style  by Susan Sully, currently $27.34, used starting at $19.95

Decorating in Detail - currently $31.63, used starting at $25.70

House Proud: Unique Home Design, Louisiana by Valorie Hart, currently $30.74, with used starting at $30.69

The Joy of Decorating: Southern Style with Mrs. Howard, currently $31.49, used starting at $28.29

Jeffrey Alan Marks: The Meaning of Home - currently $30.95, used starting at $21.99.   * I have this book and love it.

Remodelista by Julie Carlson, currently $21.70, used starting at $15.74

Black and White (and a Bit in Between): Timeless Interiors, Dramatic Accents, and Stylish Collections by Celerie Kemble, currently $31.49, with used at a pretty similar price $30.47.

The Alexa Hampton book is a great little decor bible.

I should get the Remodelista, since that seems to be what I have become.
But the Alexa Hampton book is definitely a must have !

Great choices! "The Welcoming House" by Jane Schwab and Cindy Smith is also a great book. The interiors are more formal (loads of Southern charm) than I'm used to, but so beautiful and elegant. I was perusing it at a fabric store last weekend. It's $36.12 on Amazon (you can tell I'm excited about this book, lol).
