With 2010 almost here and a bit more time for last-minute shopping, I thought it would be appropriate to share a few of my favorite design books published this year.
There are so many great design resources on the web (obviously!) but it's a treat to thumb through these beautifully illustrated over-sized books. (Not to mention you can't gift the web.) The styles range from the ultra glamorous, HUE
, to the rustic interiors of, Romantic Irish Homes
, all celebrating excellent design and offering outstanding eye candy.
