Reading List

One of the goals on my 101 in 1001 list is to begin my book collection with ten coffee table books. As my darling friend and fellow collector Christine would agree, this is one of those instances where it is absolutely okay to judge a book by its cover! Here are a few of the titles that are tickling my fancy...



I already own Details, Domino, and Style A to Zoe and look forward to expanding my collection over time! These books are all from Barnes & Noble but I suggest keeping an eye on Joss & Main's frequent book sales as well! I scored Details for half price ;) What are your favorite coffee table books?

I love coffee table books. Not only are they an amazing (pre-pinterest) source of inspiration, but they look beautiful anywhere in your home.

so funny - Joss & Main IS having a book sale right now! too bad they aren't any titles that I'm longing for!

i have a big richard avedon book that is beautiful as well as a massimo vitali book which is also quite fun to peak through! coffee table books are tough when you have husbands who want to clear the table for their videogame paraphernalia!

I always buy the coffee table books at Anthropologie when they go on sale ... they are always a good deal! However, my all-time favorite coffee table book is Slim Aarons' Poolside - so Palm Beach appropriate!

I need to expand my collection of Coffee table books, I also have some credit on Joss and Main, this would be a great way to use it.

We don't own a coffee table...or any coffee table books. Although, I love On Beauty and The Maytrees so much, I would make them my coffee table books. But there is nothing like having gorgeous pictures to flip through!

Great picks! I'm going to have to check out Perfectly Imperfect Home, that sounds right up my alley. Looove Domino - it's one I am always referring back to. Decorate by Holly Becker and Joanne Copestick is a new favorite - you should check it out!
