25 Decorators, Landscape Architects, and Artists Share Titles That Inspire

O at Home recently asked 25 decorators, landscape architects, and artists to share titles that inspire them. Of course, the bulk of them are design-related, but there are a few titles that we didn't expect.

Says Deborah Buck, artist and antiques dealer, New York City:
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
By Lewis Carroll
Alice's tale is all about metamorphosis, one thing changing into the next before her eyes. I believe in change in one's environment—our minds aren't static, so why should our homes be? Why not be a bit like Alice? I'm amazed at people who buy new wardrobes every season but can't replace their coffee table.

Other titles we're very fond of:

David Hicks: Designer
By Ashley Hicks

In the Pink: Dorothy Draper, America's Most Fabulous Decorator
By Carleton Varney

Learning from Las Vegas
By Robert Venturi, Steven Izenour, and Denise Scott Brown
