Does anyone else have beautiful coffee table books on their wish list? You can never have too many fabulous books, and currently there are quite a few books that I’m eyeing. Some of these books I love for their gorgeous covers, others for the content, and some for both. But for anyone who knows me well, they know I love to read and collect coffee table books and so my list is a bit of an ongoing hobby. My favorite place to display the books (because one needs to enjoy these precious works of art!), is in our den where we have built-in shelves. It’s lovely to see all of the vibrant and colorful covers perched on the bookcase (this and this are my favorites), and for our home which has a great deal of white, they add so much personality.
I’d also love to get this book for my husband’s office, as well as this, and this. Which books are on your wish list?
When we moved into our new home more than two years ago, we decided to take our time decorating and approach interior design intentionally. My fabulous mom – aka our interior designer – helped us to furnish with the essentials, and now we are putting icing on the cake – colorful art, light fixtures, decorative objects, etc. It’s going to take many years to complete the project that is our home, and I am cherishing every minute and every new addition. We want each piece to have purpose and be thoughtfully chosen, maybe even with a fun story or two behind it.
One item on our wish list right now is sconces for our master bath. Sconces are such a beautiful way to elevate decor and bring warmth to a bathroom. They add a unique light quality you can’t replicate with overhead lights, and their design can really transform a space. Depending upon the look of your bathroom or powder bath, you can choose something ornate and detailed, or more subtle and simple – the options are endless my friends! Since we have chrome in our bathroom, we’re searching for a fixture in that color family, and perhaps with a touch of lucite for a modern look. I already found a few I like (even a stunning gold one), including this, this, this, and this. And while the search continues, I’m excited to share these stunning sconces as inspiration for us all. Enjoy!
