We wait with bated breath every month for our hot-off-the-press, glossy copies of Town and Country to arrive in the mail slot. Every issue overflows with design inspiration and fantastic writing. So imagine our excitement at finding a book that could tide us over when the stretch between monthly issues feels like it’s getting a little long. The second to last photo with all the bookshelves is my favorite. A room where I can be surrounded by books is my dream. What’s your dream room? Thanks to Decor Arts for the photos. If you want this beauty to adorn your coffee table, it’s available at Amazon.
Home might be where we live but, sometimes, if we’re very, very lucky, it becomes such an expression of who we are that it is a part of us. In The Home Within Us, authors Bobby McAlpine and Susan Sully display 25 homes that exemplify the inspired work of McAlpine, a principal of McAlpine Tankersley Architecture. Each home is an articulation of the family who resides there, but, if you’re like us, you’ll think you could be right at home in any of McAlpine’s designs. The pictures below are just a few in a truly remarkable collection. Thanks to McAlpine Booth & Ferrier Interiors for sharing the beautiful photos!
