Shopping List: {Books}

I recently got a gift certificate to Amazon that I want to spend on buying some books. So as I made up a list of ones I've been wanting for a while I discovered some of these pictures...

Isnt a little book vignette so much prettier with a Chanel book tucked in there?

Why is that? Just the black and white words are pretty? Well regardless, I love Coco and am adding this one to my collection (in college, when I was in the library, pretending to study, I used to check this book out and stare at the gorgeous collage of pictures).
And if you dont own this one you should, because its leopard underneath that little paper cover. And as a big added bonus, the rooms inside are gorgeous.

What other coffee table books do you have that are pretty? I don't want to buy a book just because its pretty, it definitely helps the sale. Just as importantly, I'd like for them to contain something that interests me inside. Any ideas?

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your wish list. I love books and I love adding to my collection. I will definitely add the last one. I love that it has a leopard cover. Have a great day!

  2. Mmmm, leopard cover... I have yet to buy an interiors book, tho there are some I would like. I'm filing away in my brain.

  3. I love this! So true. These books are so Chic, Lady like. I have a big stack of those thick glossy magazines that my designer friend used to bring me back from Europe. They aren't even in English but I could pour over the for hours. Happy Wednesday!

  4. I have so many and you just added one two to my list- hello leopard cover..yes please! My number one right now is the Pink book (if I can ever find it) and Food, Fashion and Friends by Fleur Wood. Oh and some gorgeous lovelies from Napolitan too:)

  5. great post! books are like art displayed through a home. love the chanel one!

  6. I'm obsessed with those gold bean bag book ends! I found a pair, but they were too pricey for me. Booo :(

  7. The Chanel one is number one of my list and I'm so glad you've said it's worth it!! Will keep my eye open for suggestions. Actually come to think of it- any of Mario Testino's photography books would be perfect. He's done a special one for Kate Moss and one based on rio de janiro! (think thats how you spell it) Check out his website- he's my fav photographer!

  8. Chanel always adds a glamorous touch! On my list as well. There were so many fabulous books this fall I added to my collection. Right now I am coveting Café Society!
