Coffee Table Books

April 25, 2012


I spent today’s nap time on Pinterest for a little inspiration and found this awesome image of coffee table books with a touch of pink! What is going on with me??? Is it the level of testosterone around here that is making me scream PINK!? It’s going to be okay…my obsession with pink and my obsession with displaying books! I realized all the images I fell in love with had a touch of pink.

I love the idea of putting coffee table books on chairs or anything else besides an actual coffee table. How cool is that chair with the Chanel book on it?

Gosh, to have these many beautiful books to display under and over the coffee table. Gorgeous!

My turn…!!!

This is the area in my dining room I want to add some new coffee table books…notice it already has the pink touch!!
My picture is not as good as the ones above but not too shabby right? I went to my bookshelves to find some books…

I would like some high fashion books now. I notice I don’t have any. I guess I never displayed these with Sitting Buddha because I wanted to keep it black, white and pink. I learned today that it doesn’t really matter to match everything perfectly.

That was my project today! I think Sitting Buddha is happier to have some more books around. AND I think I officially have books in every room now!

What inspires you? Looks like Pinterest is really working for me!! It made a room a little brighter today with things I already owned, I took out my camera for some photography practice and I wrote a bit! Not a bad nap time!

Your friend,

    That looks great! I love the Buddha! I wish I had the design sense to pull something like this off.

    Ooh, we have the same In Style parties book!

    You know, I kinda suck at decorating, so I never actually used the coffee table other than literally to put stuff on when I’m sitting on the couch. I used to put flowers there but then when my toddler started walking I quickly had to clear the table ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m laughing because I can’t believe I sent you that text this morning about being “pinkalicious” and you had the same thing on your mind ๐Ÿ™‚ I love these pictures. My wedding was pink, black, and white. Tom just didn’t want the guys in pink ties or vests! I love the pictures you found on pinterest. I would do anything to have that one table with all of those books. BTW, your house is looking so pretty!!!
