Design Library

Design Library | By Grant Pierrus

Welcome to my personal library of interior design books.

As an avid lover of design, I’ve curated a collection of books over the years that have inspired me, taught me, and shaped my design philosophy. I believe that having a library of design books is a must-have for anyone who is passionate about creating beautiful and functional spaces. 

On this page, I’ve shared some of my collection with you and encourage you to create your own. Whether you’re a seasoned designer or just starting out, these books are sure to provide you with endless inspiration and insights.
