One of my favorite things to do is go to our local bookstores and spend hours looking at the books. I love the way they are displayed, and I love the smell of a new book. (I know, probably some kind of off-gassing that is bad for you like the "new car smell".) The other day I happened upon the book Old House, New Home: Stylish Modern Living in a Period Setting. What a great find. The photographs of the interiors in this book inspire me. Each setting highlights the architectural details of an older home filled with simple decor to make you appreciate the structure's character even more.
