I am a coffee table book-aholic. I’m itching to get into our house mainly because I can’t wait to bust out all of my coffee table books and find a place to style them. And while styling them IS arguably the best part, I do want to start actually sitting down and reading + enjoying + thumbing through them more often. I sat down with a glass of wine a few months ago and flipped through my Annie Leibowitz book for about a solid hour and I was shocked by how much I enjoyed it/the fact I didn’t get bored in 30 seconds.
As I mentioned in my home decor mood board post (and also in this super old post about how to find free art laying around your house) – I even like to cut pages out of my CTB’s and frame them. It is literally free art. That aforementioned Annie Leibowitz book is the one I was referring to a few posts ago when discussing my plans to make a big black and white celebrity gallery wall somewhere in our house (probably the dining room). However, I’m nervous that book is a collectible because I can’t find it anywhere online (I got it at a vintage shop in South Carolina) so I’m really on the fence. I’ll keep you posted!
What are some of your favorite coffee table books? I wanted to keep this post in the affordable range but if you know of any amazing splurge-worthy ones, let me know and I’ll do a post on those too! xx
