Home’s Best AccessoryInteriors
A coffee table book is one of my MOST favorite accessories for the home. A beautiful book is a true statement piece! Thoughtfully arranged, perfectly placed, and strategically stacked; just sitting waiting to be opened. An inspired collection brings context to a space, helping to define a room and the person that lives in it. Fashion, art, music, photography, food. . . the subject list goes on forever.
The very best coffee table books extend beyond their subject. Covers are like art – eye candy and conversation starters. Meaningful and special, mine is a curated collection of memories- adventures, people, and places that matter to me.
Assouline’s DIOR? Purchased during my first Paris Fashion Week as a reminder of what fairytale fashion looks like. My Peter Lindbergh book? A reward for my first big campaign, and a constant source of inspiration before shoots. Greatness is Out There was a gift from Madison our first Valentine’s Day. A Very Serious Cookbook, I discovered in NYC when I was conceptualizing our new kitchen.
A perfectly picked book, there’s nothing more thoughtful to give. I gifted The House that Pinterest Built by Dianne Keaton to my sister when she was buying her first home. I was given my Yves Saint Laurent when Happily Grey crossed a career milestone. I absolutely love that a home accessory can remind us of such special times.
Book shopping – I snap pics when I see one I love. Bringing a great book home from an adventure abroad, or maybe from an afternoon of wandering the local bookstore, no matter . . . each one means something to me. They all hold pages of things that inspire me, and ultimately Happily Grey.
