Thanks so much for all the generous comments on this morning’s post, a tutorial for building a Pottery Barn inspired Cubby Organizer. I’ve been lusting after that organizer for years. Appreciate the awesome tips you left, too. Had no idea a compound miter saw could be used for a project like that!
This evening I’m sharing another fave from the BNOTP library, a book about English decor/interior design.
In the BNOTP Library: Perfect English
Author: Ros Byam Shaw
Published: Ryland Peters & Small (April 1, 2007
Hardcover: 192 pages
Book size: 11.7 x 9.9 x 0.9
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Lot of wonderful pictures of rooms that feel real and lived-in, all with an understated elegance. No decorator show houses or staged rooms in this book.
- Plenty of beautiful antiques and examples/ideas for displaying art, ceramics and collectibles
- The photos exude warmth, I’d love to know the people who live there.
- Gotta add one more: Loved seeing the old-fashioned wallpapers, built-in book shelves and paneled rooms. I think I even spotted a wallpaper on page 88 in a classic chintz pattern by Colefax and Fowler called Bowood. It’s one Mario Buatta favors and has mentioned often in the past so it caught my eye.
