The Kinfolk Home – One of our favourites, this was published in 2013. In sync with their spirit of helping people explore ways of slowing down, simplifying lives and cultivating communities, it throws open doors to some of the most beautiful homes, inspiring people profiles, all carefully curated, in a way that it feels like you are an intimate part of the lives you are reading about.
The Coveteur: Private Spaces, Personal Style – The world’s largest and fastest growing luxury fashion and lifestyle destination that every fashionista worth her Birkin follows closely, for its projection of the iconic images, people, closets and homes of the A listers, put together this equally arresting book, which captures the clothes, character and castle-like homes of 43 of the tastemakers who define the fashion code of our times.
Decorate with Flowers: Creative Ideas for Flowers and Containers Around the Home – We always believed that the quickest way to update any interior space is with flowers. So when the darling of the blogger world, Holly Becker of decor8 teamed with product designer cum photographer, Leslie Shewring, we knew it was a must-grab! The duo put together an easy-to-follow list of tips and ideas for floral arrangements for any space, any style. Not just that, there are a host of nifty ideas on how to get creative with containers for each! Image courtesy, Decorate with Flowers by Holly Becker.
Brew: Better Coffee at Home – Yes, we will judge you by the coffee you drink. We are not snobbish about our coffees but we definitely are discerning.

If you are at a point where you are closer to your Barista than you are to your sibling, here’s your chance to set it right, over a cup of coffee, of course! Author and coffee expert Brian W Jones demystifies coffee for you, and teaches you all that you need to know about beans, brews, equipment and budgets. A good start, this.
