Ok so I am obsessed with books, especially pretty books…what can I say I’m a sucker for beautiful images. Now in my mind coffee table books can be any kind of book that you want to hand quickly, or to show off to guests how cultured you are! Either way here are my top 10 coffee table books on my wish list to get! ( Hint to Richard for my upcoming birthday..) Ok they aren’t in any particular order!
Home Style By City, Ida Magntorn. Amazing photography, great style decor inspiration, and even tips on how to bring style to your space! This book is £15.99 on Amazon.
Secret Garden, An Inky Treasure Hunt and Colouring Book, Johanna Basford. Some fun drawing books.I am thinking about getting one of these to take in my hospital bag, maybe it will help keep me calm? Or give me something to do in between contractions..Or I might just spend that time moaning in pain..who knows. This is £9.95 on Amazon.
The Mindfulness Colouring Book, Emma Farrarons. Another colouring book, advertised as art therapy for busy people, I love adult colouring books at the minute, they really are stupidly relaxing. So go on try it, buy a book, some funky colouring pens grab a blanket and soak up the sun while switching your mind off. This is £3.99 on Amazon.
Paris Style Guide, Elodie Rambaud. So I wanted to go Paris as you know before the baby came, see my post here, but after much talk we decided to wait till after the baby was born..like a few months after..as due to my sickness and soreness from the sickness I probably wouldn’t be able to enjoy it as much, as my walking would suffer..sad I know..but Paris I will be there soon! This is £14.88 on Amazon.
Art of Attention, Erica Jago. With breath taking photography, the Art of Attention is designed to help your practice with yoga. Something I might definitely need after giving birth…This is £22.78 on Amazon.
The Selby is in Your Place, Todd Selby. Showing a diverse range of artists, musicians, designers all mater of creatives in their home. Get some inspiration from creative homely homes. This is £22.12 on Amazon.
Oh Joy! Joy Cho. One of my favourite bloggers, and this is her new book. Oh Joy 60 way’s to create and give joy. Full of great DIY’s and fun things to do! Plus the awesome design and photographs will add colour to your coffee table book selection! Totally on my list. This is £17.66 on Amazon.
A Beautiful Mess, Happy Handmade Home. Another blog I follow religiously, just look at their blog Elsie and sister Emma’s style, DIY and home interiors will be enough convincing to get this book. I have wanted this book for ages, but never got around to getting it. Some of the projects looks sooo good in it! £15.58 on Amazon.
Journey of a Dress, Diane von Furstenberg. Even the cover of this book makes me excited to read it! Look at all those patterns. She took the fashion world by storm with her designs and this book showcases her career, featuring the journey of the iconic wrap dress. Filled with beautiful photographers from some epic photographers, to name a couple, Helmut Newton and Annie Leibovitz. This is £24.25 on Amazon.
Chanel: Collections and Creations, Daniele Bott. Last but not least, a book looking at the infamous Chanel brand, showcasing designs from the creator Coco Chanel from 1920’s and onwards. This is £19.99 on Amazon.
So there are my top 10 coffee books on my wishlist at the moment. I have recently upcycled a coffee table and when I find the right style for it I will post my before and after coffee table make over, and possibly even do a coffee table style post. Now don’t think I have forgotten the baby. Tomorrow we look at baby wishlist books..
