Now it goes without saying – we are absolute suckers for a good coffee table book!
Books are always a must when working on a styling project as they are so versatile. Perfect as a layering piece on open shelving, or as a base for smaller trinkets on your bedside, or as a hero number on your coffee table. So not only is it important to mix in the right scale and colourways when it comes to the look of the book, but selecting one that you are actually interested in is important (and a beautiful front cover is just a bonus!)
So we want to introduce you to a new series – Our very own Book Club!
We will be bringing you a selection of handpicked books that are worth talking about!! Varying in topic each Book Club, we will be fuelling your coffee table book addition and sharing our favourite selections at the same time.
So this week we will be focusing on all things Interior Design (obviously had to start here!)
