    By Vicente Wolf Artisan, $40 “I learned to learn by seeing,” writes interior designer, photographer, and furniture and rug designer Vicente Wolf, who grew up dyslexic. Lucky for the rest of us: This native Cuban experienced the world around him in images from a very young age and may be better equipped than most to teach us not just to see but how to see. For example, don’t stand in the middle of an ugly room and try to make it over, advises Wolf: Get out a clean piece of paper, draw the outlines of the space and sketch out your ideas within them. Wolf takes you through his personal view of the essential elements of design: planning, space, form, color, light and texture. And in the most personal chapter of all, he takes you on a guided tour of his own New York City loft apartment. Though you won’t come away from Learning to See knowing how to make Roman shades or lay a parquet floor, you will better understand how to bring your external and internal worlds together in a way that pleases you. The book also has a generous list of resources.
