My favorite coffee table books for decorating with

In this post: I’m sharing which coffee table books I love for decorating with and where to find them for somewhat reasonable prices. 

I have no idea what’s happened to me in the last few months. It’s like my love of decorating has come back 1000 times over.

Maybe it’s because I’ve been at home SO much.

I mean, a LOT.

Because we’ve had multiple stay at home orders and states of emergency since last March. (If you’re reading this later, that may seem extreme and not make much sense, but it’s the way things are/have been.)

And probably has a lot to do with the fact we didn’t change anything on the main floor last year. (Instead, we focused on our outdoor spaces and my office.)

Anyway, all that to say that I have been VERY focused on making changes to the main floor for about a month and a half…and I have some great projects and ideas coming your way.

And while I’m not quite ready to share them in detail (there are some sneak peeks on our Instagram account), I do have some fun shopping ideas for you.

This brings me to…

My favorite coffee table books for decorating with

Okay, so my favorites are kinda on the pricey side, so before I share links to where to find them online, I’m going to suggest a couple of ways to MAYBE get them for less:

  • Check Homesense, Marshall’s, and Winners. They often have great books but at a lower price. That’s where I got my copy of HomeBody (Joanna Gaines). Unfortunately, when I looked this week, I didn’t find any great ones. But I’ll keep checking. 
  • Try your thrift store. Sometimes, people may not know what they have or they may get tired of a perfectly good coffee table book. 
  • Ask your friends and family if they have any that they’re not using anymore. 
  • When and if garage sales pop up again, definitely take a look there. 
  • Try discount book stores or smaller shops in your area. You may get lucky. 

Okay, so if you strike out everywhere I mentioned above, just click or tap the photos below to shop good ol’ Amazon for my favorite coffee table books.

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Decorating is not as complicated as it once seemed!

Filled me with the confidence I need

Oh Shannon, thank you, thank you thank you!!  I wish I could download you and take you with me, but your Decor Staples Checklist has definitely given me the guidance and filled me with the confidence I need!

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.


I love your instructions!

LMAO!! I love your How Not to Paint Cabinet instructions! It made me laugh with good humor! Kudos for sharing your lessons learned!!

Done with Haphazard Decor!

I'm so done with Haphazard Decor! (Yes, I think I just made that "style" up). Thank you for your style quiz!


So Accurate!

I thought the quiz was so accurate, I want my friends to do it. I feel I like such a mix of things and the quiz described them all so well!
