If you haven’t gathered by now, I liked to decorate with books… Like a lot. My collection of coffee table books has grown quite a bit over the last year. I have them displayed in many of the rooms in my house so thought I’d share a few photos of where they live my space.
I’ve made some updates to my home office, living room, and sunroom using colorful books as decor. I especially love the glass coffee table in our living room piled with tons of them. A few years ago, one of my husbands clients, an editor at Architectural Digest, invited us over for drinks at his Upper East Side apartment. He had a giant side table (the size of a normal person’s dining room table) covered in oversized books. It looked so amazing and has inspired me since.
PS Like that giant six-wick candle pictured below? Get it, and all outdoor and citronella candles at Flashpoint, for 30% off (plus free shipping!) with code LEMONSTRIPES through Saturday. Their candles go all the way up to 23-wick which I’ve never seen anywhere else. The big ones make a huge statement.
