Tips & Tricks: Coffee Table Books by Color & the Best Prints to Pair With Them

Coffee table books are quite possibly one of our favorite décor accessories to add to our space. They never fail to add that perfectly curated touch to any coffee table or bookshelf, and with so many beautiful books on the market, they can be flawlessly coordinated to match any décor style or color scheme. As a matter of fact, the latter is exactly what our lovely design maven, Dee Murphy of Murphy Deesign, is addressing today! If you’ve ever been on the hunt for that ONE coffee table book in the perfect shade, then you’re in the right place. Stick with us as Dee dives into her favorite coffee table books by color, plus the GM prints (today's last day to get 20% off on btw) she would pair with them…

 

When it comes to coffee table books, you can pick by content, style, or size to create your tablescape. You can also arrange your surfaces (tables and shelves) by color… which is, of course, beautiful for the “gram.”

Do you want a black and white aesthetic? 

Do you want a rainbow colored shelfie?

It sounds easy… but it can actually get complicated to fill in the empty spaces when you’re looking for just ONE MORE PINK BOOK. Especially if you’re trying to tie the book into other décor pieces in your space, like a really great print hanging on the wall or propped on your shelf.

So, following up on the request of a friend of mine (who actually asked me to create this list quite some time ago), here is a collection of some of my favorite books in five different colors AND the best Gray Malin prints, which are currently 20% off, to pair with them. You’ll never need to wander the aisles of Barnes & Noble aimlessly again. Unless you like to do that sort of thing… like I sometimes do. ;)

Think of this as your starter kit—if you like where I’m going, I’ll give you a round two!

Note: With some of these books… I take the jacket off for the desired effect! Here we go…
