“Think, Travel, Celebrate, Charm, Decorate, Dress, Live – colorfully.”
Kate Spade


Style, by Kate Spade. One of the few books I insisted on bringing along (most went into storage for this post). Sitting out on a side table in my studio, its presence alone makes the Drexel armchair feel chic. Whenever I browse the pages I feel refreshed and civilized.


I have always loved the watercolor illustrations, and how Kate inspires herself with lists of seemingly unrelated things – I sketch this way often.

Style was published in 2004, and written by Kate herself  before selling the brand in 2009. A new book called Kate Spade New York: Places to Go, People to See is a nice read too, although published by Kate Spade New York (owned by Liz Claiborne).


What are your library essentials? Is there a renewable resource of inspiration in your life?
