Lazy Days of Summer Reading List...For My Coffee Table

Here are some coffee table books that have grabbed my attention lately...For a great post about the following book visit Nest Egg
For those of you feeling crafty this weekend (myself included)
Okay this one is not for the coffee table but I think it would be great as a quick desk reference...
Do you all have any of these? Any others that I should check out? Have a great weekend!

Great books! I especially would love Shabby Chic! Although my home is NOT shabby chic, I just love, love the style!

I haven't seen the pocket renovator, but at my old design firm our principal got us all a copy of the pocket decorator and it is a great little reference tool/guide. If you do pick up the renovator I'd love to hear if that one is good too. keep us posted!

my favorite and my best said...

i don't have any of them BUT i did look through all of the first one at borders yesterday- the find. it was worthy of purchase. i am just trying to save some money. but i would have bought it. it's mostly an advice book, not much of a picture book.

the find looks intriguing. Have a great weekend!

These look like fantastic books!! I have Thom Filicia Style just sitting on the coffee table right now.. I so need to dig in & read it!!

I've added The Find to my wish list, too. And I kind of want the new book on Wedgwood. I have the Pocket Decorator, and it's kind of handy, I bet the Pocket Renovator would be, too!

oh, some of these are definately going on my amazon list!!

Down Pillow said...

Ooohhh...I'd love to flip through those - especially the Brooches book :)

Minnie said...

I got the first through a book club recently and read the intro. The photos look enticing and the advice/stories are interesting, more for thrifters, Ebay, etc. and those who like vintage/quirky/thrifted/DYI mixed w/new/modern. I also have "Handmade in Paris," for daydreaming and "window shopping."

Erin said...

That Metropolitan Home is where I got Black Bean Soup for my dining room!!! That pictures embodies what I wish mine could look like.
