I thought I’d indulge my inner maximalist today with these cluttered corners. I’m sure I’d go a bit crazy if this were my own house, (with only 800sq ft there isn’t much room for clutter), but I think I’d be more than happy to spend a few hours among the stacks of books and other pretty things. What do you think, are these visual overload or beautifully organized chaos?
P.S I don’t have photo credits for these images so if they’re yours let me know!
One of the best gifts I received for Valentine’s Day was the book “I Love Your Style” by Amanda Brooks
. After unwrapping it, I immediately spent the next several hours devouring every. single. page. After I finished, I just knew I had to share it with you because this is definitely one of the best books on style out there!
You will not find your generic “list of ten things every woman should own” in this book. Instead, Brooks has taken six style categories and broken them down element by element. The book is choke full of vintage and modern photos and I’m sure I will be flipping through its pages for inspiration for years to come.
Brooks also weaves her own personal stories throughout which are equally inspiring. What a fantastic life she’s lived! After describing each style category Brooks includes a list of icons that embodied that particular style, as well as a list of books and movies for reference. Ah-mazing!
To give you a little taste, here are some of the style mavens you’ll find in “I Love Your Style”
And with that roster you can tell why it became an instant favorite for me! I’ve waxed on about it enough already though, head over to Amazon
or Barnes and Noble
and pick this one up, I promise you won’t regret it!
