Happy Monday to everyone today!! Today I'm happy to share a book review of one of my most creative inspirational people..Amy Butler. She is and continues to be a creative force in the fabric design, pattern, and craft world. Constantly expanding her hard and soft lines to include everything from plates, rugs, wallpaper, bedding, patterns, and a line of stationary (just to name a few). I received this book Midwest Modern from my brother a few years ago for Christmas and I still reference it to help me whenever I am stuck in a creative rut or just need a fresh new perspective on things. It's more of a lifestyle book and I think that's why I keep this book within arms reach on the bookshelf at home. My favorite section of the book is getting a tour of her interiors where she displays a lot of her fabrics and patterns as a kind of rotating gallery of products while getting a glimpse of her studio space on the lower level of her home. How fun to be able to divide your home into a completely separate work and live space! A girl can dream, right?! I hope to make room for this dream someday down the road at our next place. But for now I'm glad to have a book where I can seek new creative ideas in design, home interiors, prints, fabrics, and home/work life.
