I don’t know about you, but I have a major weakness for coffee table books.
Hence my collection is forever growing.
I love how you not only get a book that will provide hours of inspiration and style inspo, but also, these books look seriously good piled up on your table of shelves.
And let’s face it – is there anything better than curling up on your sofa, flicking through one of these – it’s like Pinterest – but, you know, IRL.
When styling, try to stick to odd-numbered groupings (three will always look good) and consider the colours of the book’s jacket and how it works with your overall colour scheme or style. remember, you can always take the jacket off the and just go with the bare cover if that looks better.
As well as the rule of three, try to layer your table up and add a tray or decorative accessories on top of your books — a candle, ornament, vase or whatever trinket you have and wold like to display.
