Any recommendations for interior design books ? I need ideas for the living room, nothing fancy, just warm and cozy. Also books with advice/principles for decorating you home.

I have found great resources for interior decorating and design at Builders Book Source at 4th Street in Berkeley. If you haven't been there, its got everything you might think of regarding design and architecture. The book you ultimately choose will depend upon your personal taste. Two of my favorites are The Decorators Bible (Crown), and The Essential House Book by Terrance Cronan (Crown). Another place to look are magazines like Elle Decor, House Beautiful, and Architectural Digest. There are literally thousands of decorating books. Good Luck and Enjoy!
