This image I found on Pinterest (via Nina Garcia) summarizes my dream reading corner: calm, comfortabe, with a view and surrounded by books to choose from. And beautiful too. I'll have it printed and added to my real-life pinboard.
What better books to read there than the Penguin clothbound classics that I've already started collecting (Oh what a pleasure to read Pride and Prejudice once again!...)? Or being inspired while turning the pages of these four coffee table books that celebrate beauty, elegance and living a chic or artistic life: 1. A privileged life, 2. American beauty, 3. Happy times and 4. Life in photographs.
