A touch of zebra

{By Gretchen Kelly Studio}

Would love to grab a cup of hot chocolate on this dreary day we are having in NY and jump right into this painting. Of course the designer in me noticed the zebra books on the table.

The book has to be I Married Adventure

I know many designers/bloggers love the book simply for it's eye candy appeal. Has anyone actually read the book?

Thanks for posting this. After seeing that book in a magazine I have desperately been trying to figure out what book it was. I haven't read it but talk about judging a book by its cover. It's gorgeous.

That's it - when I do finally write a book, I will make sure it has a beautiful cover that bloggers and decorators everywhere covet. So that way it doesn't matter how much I suck, I'll still make some money! :)

I have the book for aesthetic reasons-but do want to read it one day! I read a few pages and it definitely had my attention-just need to find the time to really dig in!

so when I had my surgery, lucky for me a teen mom marathon was on-dont judge. so one episode was going, and I couldnt help but notice they had this book! I kept on rewinding my dvr! my mom was getting annoyed bc 1-i was making her watch teen mom and 2-i was making her watch the same scene over and over for a book. I wonder if they even know how awesome it is

oo love that watercolor.

LOve that book for it's visual appeal, and yes I have read it, but unfortunately it wasn't as good of a read as it is pretty... but inspiring none-the less.

She was truly a woman of courage!

My mom bought 2 copies of this book for aesthetic appeal. She read it and enjoyed it. The store, Martin + Osa, is based off of this couple.
