Design Idea Book, Learning from Designer Showhouses
by Karen Templer
Sunset Books, pages 252
ISBN: 978-0-8487-3196-0

Out of all the Design/Home Decor books on the market, my favorite is this book.  I find myself going back to this book, time after time. It seems like I find something new every time I open it up.  Design Idea Book was published in 2007, it is going to start showing it's age.  Even so, the inspirations are timeless.  I believe I purchased the book on one of those bargain tables at Books-a-Million but you can get it here ($8.78).

How about a glimpse inside the book?

I'm going to thank you before I get the book. I just ordered it with my Amazon one-click. Thank you, I love Sunset books and this one looks very inspirational. One can never have enough great design books. Too bad I have to suffer through the weekend waiting for my book.

I love your blog, first time here...going to browse more of your posts now!

Cheers!
