Creating Art & Sharing Love Since 2009

The book is on the table..

From the series #AtHomewithTheriz today I'm sharing a home accessory I love and one that can make all the difference when styling your spaces, because you know.. the little details change everything: I'm talking about the coffee table book! 

Trying to be productive at home on these quarantine days I decided to organize all my coffee table books and thought it would be a great topic here to discuss with you.. wondering, how's your living room decor looking like right now?

From fashion to architecture and cinema or food (the subject list goes on forever), a beautiful book is definitely a statement piece of decoration. Part objet d’art, part photographic ode, they can be fascinating and they can also tell the story of their owners' interiors.

My tip for you is to chose the ones that spark a true interest in you and have photographs you want to keep going back to look at time and time again. Something that really inspires you and makes you dream about it.

I personally can easily spend hours inside a bookshop looking for the perfect book. Each and every one of it has an interesting story behind of how and/or when I got them - what gives my space decoration an unique style.

The coffee table book you've seen a lot on Instagram: Tom Ford by Tom Ford is an exploration of how the fashion designer became such an icon, pushing the boundaries of style and sensuality in clothing at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent.

A little bit of my books stories for you:

- The 'Frank Loyd Whright' book from Taschen I got on my first trip to London in 2009 (I was still an architecture student). I found it at a cute little book store in Notting Hill for the steal of 7,99 pounds!!

- 'Audrey Hepburn International Cover Girl' was another great found (as you all may know Audrey is my favorite actress).. this time in NY, at a Barnes & Nobel at Fifth Av. And believe me or not, I paid $ 14,98 for it..

- 'Stanley Kubrick' was actually a gift for my father for his birthday.. but I like it so much I kept it for myself :) Got it at the MIS shop in São Paulo when I was visiting the 'David Bowie' exhibition.  

Meaningful, inspirational, and beautiful.. a stack of books can give an uninspired tabletop a new sense of style and purpose, don't you think?

For you and for your loved ones. There’s nothing more thoughtful to give then a perfectly picked book. The 'Manus x Machina' from the MET museum exhibition was a gift I got the first time I moved to New York ❤

Now that I showed mine, why don't you show me your coffee table books? 
Be safe, stay home!
