“Surround yourself with family, laugh often, and create a space with your favorite things.” Patricia Herrera Lansing (daughter of designer Carolina Herrera) said this in a Vogue article years ago and it’s one of the quotes I try to my apply to my own life – especially when it comes to decorating my home. As a collector of books (many, many books), there’s nothing that pleases my eye more than a good stack of tomes. (Side note: be sure to check out the latest book sale on OKL. Just added this one and this one to my cart. ) Santa was good to me this past Christmas and brought me a sleigh full of glossy new page-turners (perhaps he perused my Amazon Wish List?) which means I’ve been making pretty little piles all over the place. Here, a few of my current favorite titles stacked on my entry table. I love that it’s one of my the first things I see when I walk in the door. Nothing like a sweet stack to greet you everyday!

For more, you can always peruse my Amazon Wish List and check out my monthly reads in the Book Club.
