Coffee Table Books

I love a good coffee table book, and recently designers like Tory Burch and Kate Spade are coming out with their own books. Coffee table books can bring color to a space, and they are also beautiful to  look at. I decided to do a little research about the origins of the coffee table book, and it dates back to 1540! Wonder what their coffee table books were like back then?

This is my favorite book. For the guest book at our wedding, we had our engagement photos put into a book and let our wedding guests sign in. So, its a mix of our engagement and our wedding day. It is very special and a good way to preserve your engagement photos. Lets be honest, wedding pictures > engagement pictures, so this lets me keep and display our engagement photos.

Recently, I purchased the new book Tory Burch: In Color. It is a beautiful book inside and out. It tells the story of Tory's life, how she got her brand started, what her favorite colors are and why they mean so much to her. I really enjoyed reading it and looking though the beautiful photos.

An old, but good book is Blue and White Living. If you love Blue and White then this book is a must have to adorn your coffee table.

The Kate Spade New York: places to go, people to see book is still on my wish list ( and my Christmas list). Maybe KJR will have it under the tree for me this year!

What are you favorite coffee table books? Do you like to mix and match the colors or do you keep all of the colors of the books all in the same family?
