Did I mention that one of my favourite indulgences is home decor/decorating books? The ones pictured fill just a couple of shelves of one cheery yellow bookcase in the hallway. I have probably 200 home decor and style books - never mind maybe 5,000 regular books - and am running out of space!
I also collect magazines: every month I scour the Paris and London bookshops looking for American magazines Elle Decor, House & Garden, Country Living, Country Home, the British BBC Homes and Antiques and the bi-monthly French magazine Campagne Decoration. When available I scoop up Western Interiors and Design and House Beautiful. Oh and of course the quarterly issues of Vogue Living and InStyle Home and O at Home. Sometimes I get Martha Stewart Living (if it's a decorating issue) and Veranda. And that doesn't include Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and the news and political publications, as well as occasional fashion magazines I read. Okay, perhaps it's more than an indulgence - maybe an obsession? What's your obsession?
