    Mary Randolph Carter(Author)
A beautiful and inspiring volume, Never Stop to Think Do I Have a Place for This indulges our desire to surround ourselves with belongings that impart beauty and meaning to our lives. Delving into the interiors (and the collecting mindset) of real-life tastemakers (antique dealers, fashion designers, artists, boutique owners), Carter interviews the owners to reveal their personal stories and inspirations, and what drives their passion for collecting and, ultimately, how they manage to integrate their collections and interiors to live stylishly with their passions. The book showcases a range of personalities and styles, such as Heirloom Scavengers, anglophiles who collect beautiful housewares; The Preservationists, an artistic couple who collect and restore photographs; Scavenging the Evidence of Life, an artist who scavenges old photos, menus, and maps to use in his work; and The Queen of Muchness, an antique dealer known for having multiples of everything! A great read, Carter muses delightfully on the universal desire to acquire and collect, while imparting philosophy and tips for living creatively and integrating our passions into our decor. Lavishly illustrated with intimate photographs of 16 different homes and collections, this book exalts in the beauty of bounty and carries an inspiring message of how we can follow our passions to create a home we love.

Review Text

  • By stephanie wolhuter inggs on 2 May 2014

    Mary Randolph Carter creates books which are inspirational and very personal - hers is a mind continually alive to the aesthetic possibilities of the odd and the often overlooked. In this book she celebrates the particular in others who have a similar approach to their immediate surroundings. She and they see the wonder in things with that childlike brilliance Picasso believed is in every artist.

    The book itself is fantastic, beautifully photographed and written. As a collector it made my heart sing. Thankfully this was not a gift to anyone else but myself as the book arrived late and had damage to the top corners. I could not bear to return it and wait for another copy so will live with it as it is.
