Great Buys: Design Books

diva on a dime interiors design books

Good morning Design Divas!

We are half way through the week!  Wednesday always seems to be one of my most productive work days.  I have been going through my stash of design books at home and decided to pull a few different ones to feature on the blog today.  Even the largest design firms in the world find inspiration from books, design blogs, nature, or architecture you may see driving to work.  Through the years working in the industry I have learned the importance of concepting and how to pull inspiration to be able to describe this concept through feeling, color, architectural features, and sense of emotion you want in your space. Lately I have been working on large hotel projects and have found a ton of luck looking at old design books.  These are all great buys and can be bought on  Some are more expensive than others but each book caters to a different design style or taste that may fit the look you are going for in your home.

Enjoy!  For more information regarding concepting and other related design books email me
