'Casual Living' - Favorite New Decorating Book

It has been a tough week, my nephew died of a sudden heart attack on Monday. He was far too young to have left this world. Life is full of so much sadness and hurt. I wish everyone could live to be happy, healthy, and old. I wish we lived in a perfect world. :)

I'm trying to think on other things right now, so, I've been looking through a book I purchased last month at Anthropologie. I love looking through this book. Many decorating books decorate my home, some I go through quite often; this one will remain in my reach for a very long time.

 I would love to have this patchwork sofa in my living room, and the painting behind it.

 Hope you enjoyed a few samples from the book.

I like the giant ottomans with the quilts on them. And the black & white kitchen is nice. Our kitchen is done in black & white and this photo has given me some new ideas.

Sorry for your loss, there are no words.

I really like this book. I have always been casual and now trying to be thinned and organized.

That is a very unique couch! I think it would be a fun one to have, for sure!

So sorry for your loss, I pray you are comforted and given peace that surpasses understanding..


i am so deeply sorry for your loss, dear lady - what a difficult time this must be for you and his other loved ones - and like margie, i hope his memory will always be a blessing!

you and i have so many many of the same tastes - and thoughts - it seems - you know how much i loved each of those magnificent images you so caringly shared with us - now, you just go sit on that patchwork sofa you love so much - and have a nice glass of SOMEthing! with your feet up, of course!

hugs -
