I love design books and can readily admit to owning probably too many of them (hence my attraction to the bookshelves in my new place). I'm always on the lookout for books, both old and new, that add a new dimension to my library of interior design. Today, I searched for ones that have just one thing in common - the subject (or author) is a woman whose work has had an effect on the world of design.

Shown above, top row, left to right:
Vera: The Art and Life of an Icon
The Great Lady Decorators: The Women Who Defined Interior Design, 1870-1955
Florence Broadhurst: Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives
Sister Parish Design: On Decorating
Hue by Kelly Wearstler

Second row, left to right:
In the Pink: Dorothy Draper
Tricia Guild: Colors, Patterns, and Space
Home Is Where the Heart Is by Ilse Crawford
Celerie Kemble: To Your Taste: Creating Modern Rooms with a Traditional Twist
How to Decorate: The Best of Martha Stewart Living

Have any good ones to add to the list? Let us know in the comments …
