I would like to think that I am doing alright at redecorating my house, but I have to give full credits to all the books I read on the topic to educate myself. Patterns, colours, shapes, the balance of space- I wouldn’t be where I am today without hours of reading.
So below is the list of my favourite interior books. They all have a different purpose so I made sure to list them accordingly.
You have a beige empty room and don’t know where to start? Look no further and order one of these (or all of them!).
