I am going to make everything around me beautiful, that will be my life. —Elsie de Wolfe
One of my favorite items to use to add a personal touch when decorating my home are coffee table books.
They’re great conversation starters when you have people over. Personally, when I visit someone, I’m always interested in seeing what books people have in their home.
If they have coffee table books, I love leafing through them!
If you love coffee table books as much as I do and also have an affinity for all things neutral, check out my curated collection of neutral coffee table books below.
FOOD & DRINK BOOKS
Fun tip #1: If a friend or family member is moving away, gift them a beautiful cookbook that can also double as a coffee table book which is a great housewarming gift. Schedule regular FaceTime meetings, choose a recipe and cook meals together to keep your relationship strong!
FASHION COFFEE TABLE BOOKS
Fun tip #2: If you have a big closet, decorate it with fashion-related books to elevate your space while inspiring your sense of style! Shopping your closet will be much more fun when it feels like you’re browsing your own boutique!
LIFESTYLE & TRAVEL COFFEE TABLE BOOKS
Fun tip #3: If you travel often, nab a coffee table book to decorate your home with and commemorate your trips! Don’t forget to date them on the inside!
HOME & INTERIORS BOOKS
Fun tip #4: If you have a favorite coffee table book, put it on display with a beautiful clear book stand.
Reading books are one of the easiest ways to strike up a conversation when making a new friend. If you’re not into book books, maybe coffee table books are for you. I like to think of them as picture books for adults, ha!
If you’re interested, I have an ongoing Amazon list of coffee table books you can check out as well!
