I truly enjoyed this stunning book. The soft colors reminded me so much of my mother. She loved florals and pastels.

After finding my way through the beautiful padded cover, I found so much to love. Each room is so personal. From silver, china, and monogrammed embroidery, I gathered so many great ideas.

For minimalist, this is a book you cannot do without in your library.  Pierre Paulin uses shape, texture, color, and style make each object special.

Each time I move, I love the look of my home without all of the accessories and ask myself why I don't stop there. There's something beautiful to be said for minimalism.
