I think Jane Cumberbatch's Pure Style Living was the first shelter-home-decorating-style-living book that I ever purchased. Prior to that is was ALL architecture for me. I love her philosophy of living, stylish yet simple. Her "DNA of Pure Style" is "Romantic, inexpensive, natural, simple spaces, fuctional, easy feasts, homemade, thrifty, timeless, cool, country, family, going green, modern..." All words and feelings I want reflected in my home. Here are some of my favorite images from the book. BTW, all the images are by Pia Tryde.
