Must-Have "Coffee Table Books"

Although I am a complete literature nerd, I also have an overwhelming love for "coffee table books", those beautifully bound, picture heavy books that you can just flick through to spark some inspiration. I am always drawn to pink and white, so my collection is rather aesthetically pleasing and I thought it might be of interest for those of you who have a gap in your life (or room) which needs to be filled with pretty pages of fashion and beauty.

Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes - This is a hilariously witty book which literally contains EVERYTHING you need to know about beauty, and then some more!

Paris Street Style by Isabelle Thomas - Parisian women are probably my number one fashion inspiration, so obviously I couldn't resist adding this guide to my collection.

The Glam Guide by Fleur De Force - Fleur is a YouTuber whose videos I always watch without fail. She is so sophisticated and classy, and this is a great look in on how she does it.

Unseen Vogue - This is almost completely a picture book, full of photos that didn't quite make it into Vogue but are still absolutely amazing.

It by Alexa Chung - Alexa is definitely a style icon to me, and this book is a lovely little read which also looks pretty sitting on my pile.

Love Tanya by Tanya Burr - Tanya is another YouTuber I adore, with her fun personality and optimism. I especially love her chapter about confidence and happiness!

Fashion - This huge book takes you back in time through all the eras and all the different styles that came with them.

The Fashion Book - Similar to the last, this book also takes you back through the years, but focuses more on the people behind the fashion, such as designers, stylists and photographers.

  4. It's great that you write such articles.


  5. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before. coffee table that lifts up

  6. These temporary ones are decent in the event that you have a space that doesn't have one obvious style to it. best round coffee tables
