I pitched this question the other day on Instagram because I was on the hunt for coffee table books with white spines for my entry.
Runner // Light custom order from Echo Neon (Ten-Twenty is our anniversary! 10/20/2005) // Credenza – Besta via Ikea! (high gloss Selsviken fronts) // Custom Door via CBW Doors // String of Bananas plant (locally for $30 at Cook’s!)
You’d think it wouldn’t be that hard, but since you can’t usually see the spine in any online images, and so many of the books I have or saw in stores had white covers, but a different color spine I didn’t want to risk mis-ordering. Of course going to a book store is the easiest route, but I can almost always find books cheaper, or in very good used condition online! I started asking around to make things faster and h ere are the results!
On my shelf:
Coveteur – a peek into celebrities and other interesting people’s homes and lives!
Andy Warhol Polaroids – this one is the biggest I have, tall and thick, and I got one used on Amazon! There is nudity in the book, so if that is of concern, skip this one!
Simplicity by Nancy Braithwaite — Super pretty interior book with an organic, minimal, moody feel that varies in style space to space. Love it!
Louis Vuitton / Marc Jacobs – there is some gold on this spine, but I like it!
The World of Art – got this secondhand and it must be old because there isn’t even a product photo online, ha!
#1 – Turn books around to show the pages. (A little too boho for the space I was styling this for, but genius nonetheless!)
Kinfolk Books – Table, Entrepreneur // Secret Lives of Color (has polka dots on the spine) // El Arroyo’s Big Book of Signs (hilarious!!) // Chanel 3 Set // A Field Guide to American Houses // Banksy Wall and Piece // Eames (skinnier!) // Bauhaus (lots of the books in this series seem to work, but this one for sure.) // Big Book of Chic // Photography by Tom Ang // Art House // Patrick Ahearn (white when you take the jacket off!) Mix in regular books instead of all coffee table for more options! Tipping Point or A Righteous Mind for example. //
