Book Review: The Perfectly Imperfect Home

I was super excited to receive a copy of former Domino magazine editor, Deborah Needleman's latest book, The Perfectly Imperfect Home.  The author explains in a very engaging manner, that homes must looked lived in and contain meaningful objects of whimsy.  As much as I love the sentiment of this book, it's the vibrant illustrations by Virgina Johnson that really sold me.  Here are just a few of the adorable renditions that are contained throughout this book.   Not only would this make such a great gift, but you'll want to buy two, so that you can keep one for yourself!

  20. These drawing are amazing. I think I would have to buy three books, one to give, one to keep and one to cut up and frame all these great pics.
    I think the first drawing of the washroom is based on Kate Spade's bathroom, it looks like hers. The only diff I think is her wallpaper might be red. Now I just need to find that photo in my files so I can do a post on it!!
    Hope you're having a great week.
