Editor's Note: Today I am wearing wool pants by Vince, a silk blouse by Rebecca Taylor, an Intermix rabbit scarf, an Ann Taylor sweater and Michael Kors flats.
Coffee Table books are a fabulous way to not only accessorize, but to infuse your personal touch into your home. It is always obvious to me when someone's decorator picked out their coffee table books with no thought to the client's interests or personality. Due to the wonder of things like Amazon.com, there are so many coffee table books available on the market now and no excuse not to find something that suites your tastes!
I like to use books as elevation for antique accessories and floral arrangements.
It's also good to unify the books you are stacking in some way, whether they are similar in size or color family.
Be sure to pick books that interest you in some way. Because of what I do for a living, I love collecting books on interior design.
Charles Faudree and Betty Lou Phillips have some of my favorites.
I also like books by my favorite fabric vendors, like Scalamandre.
Maybe it's fashion that interests you, in which case, most couture designers have at least one namesake book.
Vogue has put out some fabulous coffee table books over the years, and this is one of my favorites!
There are also a lot of beautiful architecture books available.
I love photography books and I find that people will actually pick these up and look through them.
Books on travel are also lovely---and the possibilities are endless!
Shania Twain is one of my favorites and I love this song off of her Greatest Hits album!
Last night for dinner I made a kale salad with shrimp.
I hope everyone has a fabulous and safe New Year's Eve! I am having a dinner party
and serving beef tenderloin!
