beautiful books


I’m a sucker for coffee table books. With great covers.
That are full of beautiful images and great inspiration.

Yes, some can be pretty expensive, but you can't go wrong with gifting a fabulous book for the holidays or for a birthday... or splurging on one for yourself every now and then! :)

These are just a few that I currently have on my wishlist:
1/ Design Sponge at Home by Grace Bonney
2/ Vogue: The Covers by by Hamish Bowles & Dodie Kazanjian
3/ Andy Warhol: The Early Sixties by Sebastian Egenhofer
4/ Christian Louboutin by Christian Louboutin
5/ Peter Max by Charles A. Riley
6/ Downtown Chic by Robert & Cortney Novogratz

Do you have any of these books? What books are on your wishlist?


  1. i'm a sucker for any book with a beautiful cover! i've been eyeing the cookbook by frankie, and recently bought my the photo album by frankie. both are filled with REALLY beautiful images and inspirations. :) so far, nothing on my wishlist yet though. but i'm pretty sure if i'd swing by the bookstore, i'd definitely find one. x
