Guest Post::Books with a Purpose

Remember that awkward moment when I told you all that I only have one coffee table book? Well, I still only have one coffee table book.  Still awkward. Today I'm over at Katie's blog Miss Dixie talking about my plan to fix this glaring issue in my apartment. Katie has some seriously great style and creative DIY projects that are 100% worth checking out!  I talk mostly about design books on her blog, but I would most certainly not mind if these books somehow also made their way into my apartment.

What other books would you recommend? I need to get started on my collection ASAP!

The One Hundred is so good! Mary McDonald's book Interiors is one of the best design coffee table books out there. American Fashion Designers at home is great, the Domino book is great, Design Sponge, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty...k clearly I'm way too into this. There are just so many good ones! Have fun starting your collection!

I have the One Hundred - it is AWESOME, but not so much a coffee table book, only because it is small, like a regular book. But it is a GREAT buy! I also have I <3 Your Style by Amanda Brooks and that is a fantastic book - add it to your list! Here's the book: http://www.amazon.com/Love-Your-Style-Define-Personal/dp/0061833126

I think you and I have the exact same problem! I only have one coffee table book and it's all about weddings. Not OK.
