I have an abundance of coffee table books dotted around my house. Some propped up on shelves, some working as a plinth for other beautiful pieces, and many stacked up next to my sofa for reading when I can grab 5 minutes with a cup of tea... here are some of my favourites, and tips on how to use them.
Books have two purposes in interior design... display, and inspiration. Don't forget to choose books with content that actually inspires you!
Choose books that fit with your overall colour palette. Try to check the spine design if buying online.
Don't just rack them up on a shelf... stack them flat and place objects on top; display them cover out; use them to group arrangements.
These are some of my favourites because their aesthetic fits with my own. Yes, they're all pretty neutral, feature lots of rustic goodness and a little bit of black. Look for books that work for you, and have fun!
