Hitting the books: a review of our faves

We are constantly on the hunt for inspiration – in the people we meet, the places we source and especially from the books we collect. Not just a fabulous addition to decor (our tip: lighting and books are the keys to finishing off a perfectly styled-yet-personalized space), coffee table books on design are a great way to keep the creative senses keen. Whether we are referencing a particular period or style, seeking out stellar pieces that we can source for a project, or simply satiating our desire for wicked decor, we constantly have our noses in the books. We’ve compiled a collection of our top picks – some old, some new – to share with you… take a gander through our list and grab a copy of your own to get yourself inspired!
