Books To Live By: What I’m Reading

20120104-081208.jpg Find books that will inspire you to cook, design and ultimately reduce your stress all on a budget!

I am a huge fan of beautiful books with gorgeous images. I love coffee table books, cookbooks and design books because they always inspire me to make great changes large or small. In my life, the key to my sanity is my living space. If my house is out of order, I am out of order causing myself undue stress. Because we live in a smaller unit, organizing and use of space is critical.

One of my New Years Resolutions is to redesign my living space. Living in a 680 square foot apartment allows for some creativity with built in book shelves and pantry space. This year, I plan to redesign my entire space and hopefully acquire a new property by years end.

When I am seeking inspiration, I turn to magazines and books for design and of course cooking inspiration. Here are a few of my current favorites:
