Best Coffee Table Books of 2017

I have deep affection for books.  I love that they can entice you and transport you to a completely different world, inspiring you with their words and images.  Once when I was young I was taken into a bookstore by a family member and told I could get any book I wanted.  I chose the book of 1,001 house plans (nerd alert!).   I spent hours pouring over this book, reviewing each plan, critiquing the layouts, and daydreaming about the perfect home I would someday have.  Today I keep books around the house with a variety of topics that intrigue me.  I frequently pick them up and flip through them for inspiration.  As spring is just around the corner, and I’m itching to rearrange the house, I’m excited to add some new books to my collection.  Scroll down to see the current list I’m coveting.
