I'm a sucker for a good coffee table book! I have them dotted around my home, in the sitting room, office & on my bedside table, they are the perfect source of inspiration for when I'm feeling a bit down and unmotivated. I have recently picked up (or received in way of presents) a few new ones that have taken centre stage on my coffee table.
How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are by Anne Berest, Caroline De Maigret, Audrey Diwan and Sophie Mas
This is not only a beautifully edited book but actually a fantastic read! I'm a self-confessed Francophile and obsessed with all things Parisian... be it skincare, fashion, lifestyle or food, I love it all! The book covers everything from how to be a Parisian mum to throwing the perfect, laid back French dinner party. It is everything that encompasses being Parisian for me: chic effortlessness and style.
Having been a fan of Emily's blog for years and I was delighted that she brought out two books to go along with it. Her latest, Cupcakes & Cashmere At Home, is as the name would suggest centred around creating a beautiful space & lifestyle. Emily's style, especially when it comes to interiors, is right up my alley! If you enjoy beautifully decorated spaces and curated lifestyle content make sure to check out this publication.
Holly Becker is my guru when it comes to interior design, I own all of her books and am also a regular reader of her blog Decor8. Her latest book is all about enhancing your living space with blooms, which is something I can definitely get behind! I love flowers and just flicking through this beauty makes me feel miles better on a rainy afternoon! The book is filled with beautiful photos of flowers, arrangements & DIYs.
This is a book that I was dying to get my hands on as soon as I heard that it was in the works... I adore Lisa Eldridge, she is a true artist and an incredibly inspirational woman. I am a makeup geek and as much as I love playing round with makeup, finding out about it's origins, history & social meaning is just as exciting to me! It truly is a very different book to anything that has been released by any other makeup artist! It's an absolutely fabulous read so if you are interested in makeup it should be top of your reading list!
I couldn't imagine a more relaxing Saturday afternoon than sitting down with a cup of tea and flicking through these absolutely gorgeous books! What are your favourite coffee table books?
