16 Must-have coffee table books

As a lover of books, it’s no surprise that my recent fixation with home decor is coffee table books. What better way to add height, levels of interest in coffee table and book shelf styling, beauty, education, and interest than with a good coffee table book? Answer: there is no better way.

A good stack of books is instant art but even better because this art gives you hours of enjoyment, endless talking points, and entertaining conversation. My infatuation with these books began as a girl, pooling over my parents’ Erte art books; looking at them now, I still feel the rush of fascination and nostalgia with each colorful, exotic page.

My book picks have something for everyone – the traveler, hostess, floral enthusiast, bakers or lovers of cake, the fashionistas, fun-fact wizards, home decor aficionado, lovers of art, elegance, people, the world, and everything in between. {Just click the images or text below to learn more.}

 

Solicitors, Protecting Yourself, and the Law

The door knocks.

You weren’t expecting anyone, but a few things can happen.

  1. You simply ignore it, not knowing if it was a visitor you needed to take.
  2. You answer, only to be bothered by someone selling you cheaper energy, pest control, books, makeup, insurance, etc. You wait and listen to be polite or say you’re not interested, only to be answered with persistence pushiness, or a knock at your door later that evening.
  3. You do or don’t answer, and the ‘solicitor’ is really just casing your home, learning your schedule, and seeing if you’re a good target.

Either way, solicitors generally mark an uncomfortable, annoying, or even dangerous moment in your day.

In my neighborhood lately, we’ve had the same pest control company making its way through our community, leaving many moms at a minimum, annoyed, and at most, downright scared. That’s why I wanted to  put together some information about solicitors, your rights, and what to do when you’re called upon.

The Best Home Decor Shops

As I am patiently anxiously awaiting all the details to come together for my new home, I couldn’t help but post a round-up of my favorite, go-to home decor shops. While I anticipated my new house being perfectly decorated and put together within weeks of moving in, that didn’t quite happen as planned. Who knew, right? (Probably anyone who has ever moved before…)

Until I can start posting my home reveal pictures by room, you can learn my tips, tricks, and not to secret places to find affordable and adorable gems. I have decorated and furnished almost my entire home with these shops.

Whether you’re moving into a new place, need a major or small room refresh, I promise you’ll find what you need from my favorites list.
