ask decor8: Good Design Books?

Viviane wrote in asking, "I would like to begin to "improve" my apartment by redecorating it myself a bit. Which interior design books can you suggest for a lay person?"

Viviane, good news! I've been working on a list now for several months over at Amazon, it's called decor8: My Picks for Design Addicts. It's a work in process, I add to it as I discover new ones (or remember ones from the past). I hope my book list over on Amazon is a good start for you.

Of course, decor8 readers are a savvy bunch. I'm sure some of them can give you a tip or two.

Anyone want to help out Viviane?
