In This Segment

H&H style editor Michael Penney shares his three all-time favourite design and decorating books that he's been pouring over since he was a child — yes, a child. Martha Stewart's Gardening is full of colourful photography and useful tips. Thomas O'Brien's American Modern is a more recent book, and a staple for H&H editors. (Enjoy our photo gallery with excerpts from the book.) And finally, House Beautiful's Colors For Your Home provides paint swatches and quotes from designers about why they love various paint colours.
