Last week I received in the mail Finland Children’s Spaces and the new Be Creative With Famille Summerbelle Books.  I was so excited and couldn’t wait to look through each page.  Japanese Publishers Paumes does such an amazing job of curating and photographing the homes of talented artists and creatives.  I am a huge fan of all their books and have been collecting them for many years.  Every Birthday, Christmas, and Mother’s Day my husband always knows what to get me.   The funny part is that they are all written in Japanese, I buy them only for the images, but they are definitely worth it.  What I like most about them is that they show how real people live in their spaces and the creative and clever ways they decorate in them.  My favorites are all the Family Style and the Children’s Rooms Books.  I’m really excited about the new book they did on the talented Famille Summerbelle.  They show really fun craft projects as well as their home in Paris.  The nice part is that all the craft projects are in English too, hooray!

I usually buy my books directly online from Paumes.  Whenever I’m in San Francisco I pick them up at my favorite bookstore in Japantown, Kinokuniya.

I find these books so inspiring that on One More Mushroom I will be starting a series, where I take an image or room in one of the books and do a project or design a space based on the inspiration.

I love these too Meta! What a great idea to start featuring rooms on One More Mushroom as an inspiration for a project. Looking forward to it!

Thanks so much for this post. I was wondering if the books were worth it just for the images! I will give them a try!!!
