There are some very good reasons why you should pick up a book about interior design.
I personally think it’s an extremely good idea to read a book like this if you’re interested in interior design in general, but there are also some books I highly recommend to people who are already very knowledgeable about interior architecture.
And of course, there are a lot of books that are excellent for people who want to be the next Mark Rothko.
But I’ve already covered a lot in this article, so here are some of my top picks for the best interior design books ever.
I’m also including some reviews that are very specific to this list, like “The Art of Interior Design” and “Interior Design by The Architecture of Tomorrow.”
Read through the rest of this article and let me know which books are your favorites!
“Interiors by the Architecture of Today” by Mark RothkinThis book is a must-have for anyone interested in learning more about the history of interior design and interior design theory.
The author is one of the best people to know about interior and exterior design history, and this book gives a great overview of the history and development of interior architecture theory.
This book is also the only one that talks about modern interior design as opposed to the past, and it includes all kinds of practical information about how interior design has evolved over the past century or so.
The book also includes a list of architectural elements that are more contemporary than what we’ve come to know as “traditional” design, like the horizontal and vertical columns and the shape of the windows and doors.
If you’ve ever been to a design show or had a chance to see an amazing project from an architectural firm, you might not have much in common with an architect like Rothkin, but you’ll have a lot to learn about interior, design, and design theory from this book.

“A Guide to the World of Interior Art” by Jonathan PembertonThe book is one I recommend every architect should read.
Jonathan Pender is the co-author of many books, and the one book he’s particularly well known for is “The Design of Tomorrow,” which was a seminal work in the field of architectural analysis and planning.
Pender was also the author of the book “The Architecture of Design” published by John Wiley and Sons in 2006, and he wrote a new edition of that book, titled “The Architectural Interpretation of the World: An Introduction to Contemporary Architecture.”
This new edition includes a new chapter called “Architecture in the Modern Age,” which is dedicated to “interpreting the modernist tradition.”
This chapter is very well written, and Pender explains what modernist architecture looks like in a modern context, as opposed in the past.
This is the best book on modernism that I’ve ever read, and you’ll find yourself coming back to it often.
“Modernist Design in Architecture” by Frank GehryThis book has been out for more than 40 years, but I still remember reading it as a kid.
Frank Gehri’s book, which is now available on Amazon, is one you’ll definitely want to get if you want to learn more about how architecture came to be.
Gehri wrote about how the French avant-garde artists in the early 20th century came up with a number of very effective and effective ways of looking at buildings.
In this book, he talks about the influence of the French Modernist movement on contemporary architecture, and how that influence is still very influential today.
Gehry also talks about how architects can “create a new sense of community” and how they can create “a new sense on the inside.”
The book is available for free online here.
“Arching and Designing the Human Body” by Paul StametsThis book was written by Paul St. Laurent, a professor of design at Harvard University and the author, along with John E. Zwick, of “Archiving and Design: Designing and Living in the 21st Century.”
This book gives an excellent overview of how we’re seeing architects develop a more detailed understanding of the human body in recent decades.
St., Laurent also talks a lot about the importance of designing buildings that look like humans, and even discusses some of the problems with the current design of buildings.
St Laurent also discusses how architects should design buildings to “reflect the human condition,” and he does a great job of giving examples of buildings that are extremely detailed and functional.
You can get the book here for free, but be aware that the price is very high.
“The Life and Art of Design: An Architectural History” by Peter DiamandisPeter Diamands newest book is called “The Living and Architecture of Architecture: An Anthology of Contemporary Architectural Art,” and it’s the second book in the
