Coffee Table Love

I love statement pieces--beautiful jeweled necklaces, bold floral prints, sequined sneakers, you name it! But the one statement piece I love most is a good coffee table book--and lucky for me (and you!), two of my favorite brands have come out with some paper eye-candy this week.

Tory Burch published her first, Tory In Color, and just by the look of the cover, I know it will be fabulous! I have looked forward to something like this ever since I stepped through those big orange doors several years ago (I worked for Tory.) Her world is classic yet dramatic, flashy yet subdued, old-school meets modern chic--and I am really happy she has decided to share what inspires her and the team with all of us. Guess what my favorite chapter will probably be?! (did someone say yellow?)
However, in Tory's world, I guess I should say limoncello, daisy, dandelion--because there are many, many different shades of sunshine.

The second book on my list is Kate Spade New York's Places To Go, People To See.
I fell in love with their first book, Things We Love. Browsing the pages, I can just imagine myself stepping back in time...lounging in my 5th Avenue apartment (in pearls and polka dots of course!)...waiting for my sweetheart to arrive home, sipping decadent martinis made on our luxurious bar cart, and dancing all night to Sinatra-like melodies. 

This new gem should be just as exciting. Travel tips, witty quotes. It makes me want to travel to Rio or Havana, Nairobi or Mumbai--snapping photos of exotic people and places accessorized in something quintessentially Kate. 

Holiday present, birthday present, or an "I'm just celebrating everything" present--these two books are sure to make life a little bit grander.
