One of my favorite design book _ Interiors: Country & City

Hey! For those who don’t know yet, I am a country/city girl! I grew up with chickens & pigs, organic vegetables and milk on my mom’s parents farm. But I spent vacations and holidays at my father’s parents “boarding house” business in the city. Even though I loved the country lifestyle; eating fruits directly from the trees and playing freely in a huge fenceless backyard, I was fascinated with the things from the city… stuff like Jello, chocolate, ice cream, apples {yes, I said, APPLES _ Remember: I was born in Brazil, and apples were an imported fruit found just in the markets}; oh..., not forgetting the factory-made toys…!!! All those things that you could only get in a big city! Anyway, just a little bit of my story… then you can understand where my interest with this style called country/city comes from. Here I would love to share one of my favorite books from my design library! Hope you can enjoy those beautiful settings as much as I do! Every time I flip the pages of this book I just dream… and feel something so close to me that I can’t explain in words.

My beautiful "Pupu" got curious... and resolve to investigate my actions... "_ Why is she putting the book on the floor, and taking pictures of it...?!... Strange... Sniff, sniff"

There are so many other images that I would like to share with you here... But the post would be too long...! If you want to purchase the book, go to: MY BOOK LIBRAY, a gadget on the right side of the blog page.
