I often take my kids to the library. My three year old loves books and her 11 month old brother loves climbing on the chairs.

Lately I have been wandering sections that interest me, like gardening, cooking, interiors, floral design,  and have found some great books. Flowers at Home by Mariella Ienna I particularly liked because of her belief in simplicity and the importance of a vase in the overall design. Flowers at Home offers you a huge range of designs and an unlimited source of ideas as well as advice on styling, basic floristry techniques, choosing containers, combining colours, and selecting the right design for a particular setting or occasion.

Books are always a great way to learn and inspire!
