World Book Day 2015

Holiday At Home by Jason Grant

Tomorrow, the 5th March 2015 is World Book Day so I thought it only fitting to do a quick post on books. I love books with a passion and it’s been my dream for as long as I can remember to have a home library. I not long ago started doing book reviews here on the blog and they are some of my favourite posts. But what exactly is World Book Day? Well, It’s a day that is designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading, and it is marked in over 100 countries all over the world. The aim of World Book Day is really to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading but I think we adults should be able to celebrate it too. So I thought I would share some of my favourite interiors books with you, some of which I have reviewed here on the blog.Why not treat yourself to a lovely new book in celebration of World Book Day or better still give one as a gift to someone you know will appreciate it. You can read reviews of the books here.

I’d love to hear what your favourite interior design books are so don’t forget to let me know in the comments, ok?

  • Hi Stacey,
    Yes, I love books too! In fact I’ve recently started using our local library more, in an effort to prevent its closure and have discovered some fabulous design books. My two current favourites:
    Tricia Guild “A Certain Style” (2010) in which she explores colour, pattern and space. Exquisite photographs and her choice of colour combinations is so refreshing. Apart from this, the book itself is a joy to hold and read – the spine is covered in an incredibly tactile fabric, with vibrant colours throughout.
    My second choice is a complete contrast in style: “Living in Provence – Interior Styles and Decoration”, photographs by Solvi Dos Santos, text by Sara Walden, with a foreword by Terence Conran. Another beautiful book. Its photographs are full of atmosphere, conjuring up that laid-back pace of life; Provencal country living, a little shabby around the edges, rich with pattern and quirky accessories. Inspirational ideas and use of colour, which could easily be incorporated into a home of any size.
    These two have got my brain buzzing!!
