Also, this other book 'Interior Design Course' by Tomris Tangraz , is one of my favorites! Its great for the aspiring designer like myself and helpful if you're in school or already working in the design field. This book is very helpful because it starts all the way from the basics....I picked up this copy at my local bookstore.
After seeing this book ('The Left Bank Look') via Decor 8....I just had to get it! So happy I did, its so cute and perfect for people who love to do arts and crafts. Although I am not a huge crafter, I appreciate it and I LOVE books! The Left Bank Look is by Anne Hubert. Here's the way it was described on Amazon. The idea is simple: Take plain, mass-produced basics from your closet--shoes, clothes, linens--and use easy DIY techniques and inexpensive materials to transform them into chic treasures inspired by design from the streets of Paris. Check it out on Amazon.
