One of my favorites, yes, there are many, is Designing the Hamptons: Portraits of Interiors...a beautiful peek into this storied community. The photography is incredible and the featured homes are covered in depth.

So excited for this giveaway. Keeping all my fingers and toes crossed. I can never have enough good design books and this one sounds very, very good.

Thanks Jamilyn. Oh, and does it count if I'm already a follower?

Looks like a wonderful book. How exciting to have a chance to win it! I have many favorite deign books, but I especially love Houses Inside and Out by Mariette Himes Gomez.

Alaina @ Live Creating Yourself said...

Oh I would love for my home decor book collection to grow! But at $40-75 a pop, it is not moving as quickly as I'd like. So far all I have is the Domino book which I love. So I'll say that's my favorite!

Fingers crossed.

I love just about any book on design! Fave mag? Lately I'm into Veranda. I'll miss Met Home oh so much. Favorite source for design books - OVERSTOCK!

style chronicle said...

Favorite book, hmm... probably Vogue Living.

VictoriaArt said...

I follow and love this book!

Books, almost every design book, no absolute favorites, but eclectic and chic is top on my list! And the British design magazines, all of them!

Many Thanks!

Hey Jamilyn! I've just stumbled upon your blog for the first time today and I LOVE it! Your home is beautiful, your style is gorgeous... I can't wait to catch up with you more.

I'd love to tell you my fave design book, but I can't promise that I'll have one picked before the end of your contest. I'm a newbie to this design world and, although I received EIGHT design books for Christmas, I've been bad thumbing through all of them instead of reading one cover to cover. I will DEFINITELY let ya know as soon as I figure it out!

I have to say that the So Chic book would probably be my fave though ;) The cover style is RIGHT up my alley!

So happy to have 'met' you!!!

AM obsessed with design books! Great give away. I think my faves are by Albert Hadley, An affair with a house by bunny williams, the domino decorating book, Houses by Mariette Himes Gomez and so many more. All the ones that I have are my favorite!!

the gardeners cottage said...

Hi Jamilyn,

I think my favorite design book is An Affair with a House.

But for Christmas I received that huge Ralph Lauren book. It is a combination of fashion and design and I just love it. Every page is a work of art.

Your blog is looking fantastic by the way.

I always look at airports for the U.K. edition of Elle Decor. It's fabulous and very hard to find. Maybe it's the elusiveness, but it's may favourite.

sara said...

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I personally love the Domino book - can't recall it's exact name. I miss Domino!!

Melissa said...

Hmmmm-- is it odd that I still mourn the death of Cottage Living daily? I have recently crawled out from under my rock and discovered Atlanta Bartlett-- love, love Living With White. I would love to add this great book to my collection!

Francesca said...

Well I don't have much in the way of my own home/design library, but I looked through this very book at my local bookstore and LOVED IT! it would be such a pleasure to own!

I am inspired by so many things, by beautiful light and vintage things and those quirky touches that really give a room a voice, like little trinkets or details, like molding or the perfect lamp. I love cozy corners that beg you to stay in your PJs all day, and clean countertops in the kitchen.

Ooh, I want it bad. Today my favorite design book is Interior Wisdom, but I still go back to Domino again and again.

paula said...

oops, the comment from Amy is actually me! thought I was signed back into my account. Oh, and she can win too, I am sure she would be delighted.

Thanks for the giveaway! I'm excited to have a chance. I'm mostly a magazine gal: Elle Decor and HB, so a book would be great! Thanks!

CRICKET said...

I have a Mary Emmerling, "Quick Decorating" book that I got over ten years ago and it taught me to use fresh fruit and flowers. Now whenever I feel I need a boost, a bowl of oranges or a single bouquet makes my home feel good. I have had you bookmarked for a while but am now a follower, I almost missed this post!

Lovely Little Nest said...

Thanks for your comment on my site!

My favorite book is a little 5x5 number I bought for 50 cents at a yard sale. It's called "A Perfect Day: Life's Little Pleasures" and it contains all sorts of things that can make your day more enjoyable ~ a few drops of rosemary pure essential oil in your shower head, how to find the perfect shoe in your size, etc. :)

Simply Mel said...

One of my favorites is The Paris Apartment! Claudia is brilliant!

Bonjour Jamilyn,
Thank you for coming over and leaving your sweet comment. You have a beautiful blog and I love the style of your home. This was a great time to come by too - I guess I have to say one of my favorites is The Paris Apartment.
I'll be following along and will be back soon.

Hi Jamilyn!
Thank you for your comment. It's fun to meet fellow New Englanders!

I am currently reading Rose Tarlow's "The Private House", and it is quickly becoming one of my top favorites. I am not a fan of "decorated" houses, and I love how Rose designs rooms and houses that look like real people live and love there. Now, that is real talent!

I look forward to looking around your blog!
best,
joan

I have wanted this book ever since I saw it featured somewhere in this crazy blog world. I think my favorite design book currently is the Domino book because I miss the magazine so much-!! This would be a great addition to the collection.

I enjoy re-reading some of my old Mary Engelbreit books. As for magazines........ I really miss Home Companion by Mary Engelbreit, but enjoy Country Living, Southern Living, Traditional Home, and pretty much anything else!
