Holiday Gift Guide-Books

Books worthy of setting out on display are always great for a quick flip through for inspiration.  I have a few faves that I love to peek at every now and then, and depending on the day I always find something new to be inspired by.  They are like a gift that keeps on giving!  If you know your friend has a certain interest, be it fashion , interiors, jetsetting, etc, there is a coffee table book out there for her!  Here are a few fun ones to start with:
1. For the romantic: The Lights of Paris. Need I say more?

2.For the design junkie: Fornasetti: Designer of Dreams. This one is actually at the top of my wish list. I am obsessed with any and all things Fornasetti.

3. For the creative: Vera: The Art & Life of an Icon. Vera built her empire on the idea that fine art should be available to everyone. The perfect inspirational story for our times.
4. For the wanderlust: In the Spirit of Capri. Get whisked away to this chic destination with the turn of a page.

5. For the bohemian: Gypset Style. Part gypsy, part jet setter, a look into the lives of these "high-low cultural nomads"

6. For the prepster: A Privileged Life. We can't all live a WASP lifestyle, but we can take an inside peek at it.

7. For the dog lover: Photobooth Dogs. Can you even handle the cuteness?

8. For the naturalist: Botanicals: Butterflies and Insects. Filled with amazingly detailed drawings from the past three centuries.

9. For the fashionista: Pucci. Detailing Emilio Pucci's life of fashion and fame, each limited edition book comes bound in original Pucci fabric that varies from book to book.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! We are headed to San Francisco today to take in all the lovely city has to offer during the holidays.  See you Monday!
