Upcoming Book Releases

It seems that my wish list on Amazon just keeps getting longer and longer, especially since there are so many exciting book releases in 2007. I'm anxious to get my hands on these books, but alas, it looks like I'll have to wait a little while! Here are a few that I'm looking forward to:

"Privileged Life: Celebrating Wasp Style" by Susanna Salk. I know that I already mentioned this book a while back, but I think this is going to be a good one. Alyssa at Petite Tresor was kind enough to alert me to an update on the book over on the Fashionista website. Jackie O, Grace Kelly, C.Z. Guest- what more do I need to say?

"Florence Broadhurst: Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives" by Helen O'Neill. A biography on the tragic life of Broadhurst, an Australian designer. Her wallpaper designs have a cult following to this day.

"Decorating Is Fun! How To Be Your Own Decorator" by Dorothy Draper (my idol!). I have a first edition copy of this 1939 classic, and I truly treasure it. Draper writes in such a light-hearted manner, and her decorating tips are certainly applicable today.


  1. I am looking forward to checking out all of the above :-)

  2. WOw... these look like good bedtime reading/browsing.

  3. OMG, just when I thought I had all the books I needed, I love Dorothy Draper, so I can't wait to get that book. I just got the new book by Vicente Wolfe, it is also worth checking out.

  4. I know, I can't wait for these. And Mark, I know, I adore DD. She's my favorite.

  5. Jennifer, thank you for these recommendations. A first edition - you lucky girl. I'm going to troll around for a copy. I also didn't realize that FB's life was so tragic - this also looks like a good read. Wonder if Anna has read it?
