Today H2Designo is here to talk about The Books we find the best and most interesting in the field of Interior Designing. Nowadays with the help of google, every information is just a click away. We tend to forget the importance of reading. A book is not always in the physical existence we do have e-books also available nowadays but how many of us actually bother reading? All we want is ready and fast information, the entire learning and gaining something from it process has faded away.
Reading helps us evolve our imagination, it develops the mind and makes it more skilful. Honestly me pointing out to you the importance of reading is not going to make you want to read but trust me its important. VERY IMPORTANT.
Following are some of the books we at H2Designo admire.

MID-CENTURY MODERN: INTERIORS, FURNITURE, DESIGN DETAILS BY CONRAN OCTOPUS INTERIORS
The interiors of 1950s was designed in laboratories and tested on inhabitants of all ages before being built for the masses. These homes were thoroughly contemporary with antiques and period styles entirely banished. This book explores the interior décor of this decade concentrating on all key aspects of interior decorating – walls, flooring, surfaces, lighting and furniture. It thus shows us how ideas can be taken from the interiors of 1950s and mix them with elements of other eras.
INTERIOR POTRAITS BY VICTORIA HAGAN
Victoria Hagan is a New York based interior designer and has been awarded many design honours. She regularly gets featured in magazines and is a frequent speaker on design issues. Her book has the following reviews.
“Celebrating her firm’s 20 years, Victoria Hagan: Interior Portraits (RIzzoli, $50) captures the decorator’s signature style – equal parts elegance and comfort – with projects that include Nantucket cottages, prewar apartments, and a Jackson Hole retreat.” ~Elle Decor (October 2010)
“Known for restrained and refined rooms with cerebral atmospheres and strong architectural foundations, Hagan merges traditional aesthetics with the requirements of modern living. Her crisp, uncluttered designs are not only visually appealing, her clients – who include Revlon chairman Ron Perelman and comedian Conan O’Brien – find them supremely peaceful.” ~Elle Decor (June 2010)
