Coffee Table Books | Decor’s New BFF |

 

They say you’re never fully dressed without a smile…and the same can be said for the interior decor of your home. It is never fully dressed without accessories. The finishing touches create the discerning elements that makes the space truly yours. A reflection of who lives here and that can often be an insight into the personality of the home owner. The things you keep on your coffee table say a lot about who you are and where you’ve been. For anyone who truly loves interior décor, a coffee table is not just another countertop that holds your miscellaneous items after you walk in the door. Instead, it should be viewed as the centerpiece of your living area.

 

 

The interior trend right now is to add books as the accent to the space. Coffee table books are almost as important as the coffee table itself, sometimes even more so. This display is a work of art. A vignette that is carefully scripted, looking almost casual, but is in fact quite tricky to achieve.

The right size balance, the right colours, the right titles. Ahhhh…The pressure.

 

 

My design tip is this…Choose a theme, a colour palette and a feature item to add some interest. For me, I like to add some colour and movement…therefore I would select books that are fresh and vibrant. With a similar binding size to keep some consistency, stack them… and then place a candle or a frame on the top of the books to define the grouping. This works well in an informal room, on a glass or timber table and can provoke conversation, depending on the titles.

Or perhaps your favourite stiletto can be the accent on the vignette?

 

All white on white…and coral…perfect

The Tom Ford book is one of the most sold coffee table books on Amazon. The classic Black and White cover, suits a formal lounge, a masculine master suite or can be softened by adding blooms in a glass vase.
