Today I bought this wonderful book called Creative Spaces by Geraldine James. A wonderful compilation of 20 homes divided into different design types such as "art-loving modernists" and "carefully curated purists". Firstly, I love the size of the book. It is large enough to see the pictures well but not so large it is hard to hold and the cover has a bit of texture which to me reflects what you find inside. This book is the third in a series from Geraldine, the others being Creative Displays and Creative Walls, and I have to say I love the feeling of each space she has chosen. They are very thoughtful rooms, not always my style, but always interesting. My favourite is John Derian's home in Brooklyn ( it is the cover shot). The way he has collected and styled his treasures is so intriguing that I looked at each picture over and over to take it all in. Really enjoyed this book and look forward to collecting the other two!
