These are the books I can wholeheartedly recommend to you for reading, learning and 'contemplating' - many of them literally speak my mind. I have read all of them and I am the proud owner of most of them as well - either I own a real, hard copy of them or I have them on my Kindle.  

I was raised up in a family home with a big library and my 'secondary' present for every Christmas, Easter and birthday was a book. I am old-school in terms of books as I still prefer to be able to have the physical version - it just feels different and gives a deeper sense of understanding and joy.  

Not to mention the advantage of them being an easy and stylish decor addition to create that special and personalised finishing touch in your home. 

Happy Reading!

Styling and Decorating - Express Yourself

You might have a newly purchased home that needs a full styling service or you already have the big pieces in place but the interior still lacks that "wow" factor and need some help with the smaller details.

Perhaps you just need a sort of design remix to refresh your space and give it a new look.

Or alternatively you are about to sell or rent your property and wish to make it more appealing and valuable for possible buyers and renters.
