Happy National Coffee Day!
When I have my own place in the near future, one thing that I would like to incorporate into my living room space is a collection of carefully curated coffee table books. The beauty of these is that they serve multiple purposes – whether you are in desperate need of inspiration, something to occupy guests, a meaningful gift for a loved one, or an eye catching art piece to complement your home decor. Whatever it is, these books are filled with stunning photographs, artwork, and interesting reading material that you can revisit overtime. I’ve rounded up 5 that are either a personal favorite of mine or have caught my eye recently! Depending on your personal style and interests, there’s a little bit of everything from fashion, design, architecture, to travel sprinkled throughout.
