New York, LA, Paris, London, Jakarta… Okay, so we live in North Carolina, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t appreciate — and adopt — elements of big-city style. Annie Kelly and photographer Tim Street-Porter have compiled some of the most beautiful and tasteful projects from big name designers such as Muriel Brandolini, Peter Dunham, Jonathan Adler, and Mary McDonald in their gorgeous book Rooms to Inspire in the City. Special tips on tight spaces, especially bathrooms and kitchens, make this book essential for those in the city, but universal design concepts make it a great find for anyone with fabulous taste. Thanks to Stylebeat for sharing the sample photos from this book:
