colfax & fowler Interior Inspirations (218x257) (2)

My copy of designer Roger Banks-Pye’s book, Interior Inspirations is tattered and worn, binding is splitting, pages creased from earmarks, and years of design comments written on every page.  In other words….it is well used!!

No one does cozy elegant better than the British.

“The rooms are a bit eccentric with some hodge-podge thrown in, but they look like they evolved over time. These homes are not the American, brand-spanking new look.” as Jennifer Boles of  BiblioStyle writes and I agree!

Roger’s sketches, complete with water color accents, detailed his imaginative designs and he never stopped experimenting with fresh ideas.

He detailed exactly every element of his project’s design, from color, fabric, measurements, method of construction….every degree of the plan was technically planned to produce the grand finale.

If you don’t own a copy of this marvelous book, you must add it to your library.

Do you have a favorite design book you always refer to?  Please let me know!

I think we've looked through and used this book many times together! I do need my own copy.
