I love decorating books, and so I’m excited to be talking about my favorites today. There are affiliate links in the post. Also did you hear the news? Yvonne and Kelly are writing books of their own!! I can’t wait to get them in my hands! And now onto our favorites. The giveaway details are at the bottom of the post.
You can listen to the podcast episode on books right here.
I am going to start with my book because… well… I wrote it, hee, hee. Yvonne and Kelly talk about it in the podcast. It’s the book I wish I had when I was learning how to decorate and it’s full of the things I’ve learned over the years.
If you want to learn paint techniques for using calk paint, get one of these Annie Sloan books. They are chocked full of very helpful step-by-step instructions.
The Giannettis really do have the magic touch! They have two amazing books that both Kelly and I recommend. They too are filled with gorgeous rooms and ideas. Patina Style is full of furniture with amazing patina. If you want to distress furniture, I like to refer to these photos so you can see what the real deal looks like. Some distressed furniture looks overdone. Look to real antiques to the look you are going for.
A touch of farmhouse charm shows you how to give your home a farmhouse feel no matter where you live. The projects included are simple but lovely.
This is a gorgeous and very large book that is a reference guide for me. It’s full of antiques and detail on detail. I don’t add this much to a room, but I like to add the kind of real elements you see in the pages of this book. Charles Faudree was the master!
Kathryn’s home is gorgeous and has been in many magazines.
This book is full of great ideas for how to fix up a space by styling rather than decorating it. Great ideas for inexpensive fixes.
