I am a huge fan of a good coffee table book. Sometimes I buy them just because of how cute the covers are. Sometimes I buy them because they look interesting. But mostly I buy them because I feel they add the perfect touch to decorating any room.
When purchasing a coffee table book, I always make sure that the cover will compliment the room decor. You want the book to be an accent to the room, not the main focus. So if my room is pastel tones I wouldn’t purchase a book with a red cover. Another detail that I look for when buying a coffee table book is that size. I don’t want a book too big or too small, especially when I am planning on stacking them.
Collecting the perfect books to decorate a room with can take some time hunting around to find the right ones. I have made a list of my personal favorites! I hope you enjoy! Happy Reading!

ONE PAN, TWO PLATES is the perfect book for fast delicious meals and less dishes. And the color of the cover is a added bonus!

My list of coffee table books could go on and on. I love decorating with them. Books are such a easy and stylish way to make any table or shelf look amazing! Here is a little corner in my living room. Some are old and thrifted books I’ve had for ages. Others are new and expensive! For example, the TOM FORD BOOK is almost $100. But so good!!
