LDV Gift Guide: For the Bibliophile + A Giveaway!

I’m not someone who collects things, unless you count stacks upon stacks of beautiful books on design, fashion, travel, and style icons. I love reading my beloved books and turning to them for inspiration. A beautiful coffee table book is at the top of my list of favorite gifts to give and receive, so I’ve put together a list of my current must-haves in the book department.
In addition, one of my favorite interior designers, Nathan Turner, was sweet enough to send me a signed copy of his gorgeous new tome on design and entertaining, Nathan Turner’s American Style. He was also gracious enough to send an extra signed copy to give away to one lucky reader!

I'd love the opportunity to attent Design Camp. I am from a small design firm in Upstate NY and any new trends, and pointers are always helpful to keep moving forward in this fun and exciting design world. I follow you on all social media sites, and find your information inspiring!

Design Camp sounds amazing. I have my own small business in Montana and would love to attend the seminar and get fresh ideas and hear amazing speakers! Hope I win!

Hi everyone, I just realized that the giveaway details in this post mentioned Design Camp rather than Nathan's book. I'm so sorry for the confusion. I will be sure to include your comments in the drawing for Design Camp. You can find the Design Camp Giveaway Post here: http://paloma81.blogspot.com/2012/11/giveaway-win-ticket-to-design-camp.html
