If you’re going to deck out your new home, you’ll most likely want to add some personal touches. We love this book by popular designer Tamara Maynes, which will inspire you to get to work crafting your own decorative pieces for your house. Maynes encourages readers to be creative and to think about creating their own projects such as wall art, textiles, ceramics, lighting and furniture. There’s also a helpful section that gives a thorough run-down on a variety of materials, featuring useful tips for preparing cane for weaving and explanations of different types of clay.

Make Yourself at Home: Design Your Space to Discover Your True Self

We may think we know a lot about New York thanks to all those binge-worthy TV shows, but have you ever wondered what it’s like inside a real home? Now you can find out, thanks to this interesting volume by Paul Gunther, director of the Gracie Mansion Conservancy. This book takes a look at all the different types of homes in New York, including everything from cosy bedrooms and glamorous kitchens to antique-filled dining rooms, sumptuous hallways, ultra-modern bathrooms and book-rammed libraries, and even gardens and terraces. Gunther provides great insight into all the different areas, such as Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx, giving the reader a thorough knowledge of the wide variety of homes in the Big Apple. 

When it’s not adorning your coffee table, this stylish tome has plenty of sound advice from home design pro Emily Henderson, to help you to rethink the arrangement of your home. It allows you to revaluate your own personal style to get a fresh outlook on dressing up your space.

Home design and home organization go pretty much hand in hand. There’s a multitude of ways to store your art and treasures as well as your less-attractive, but functional extras in the tidiest and most seamless way possible. This book teaches the art of aesthetically pleasing storage that flows beautifully with the rest of your home, instead of looking like an eyesore or an afterthought.

Beauty at Home, by Aerin LauderGood taste is, arguably, embedded in Aerin Lauder’s heritage—as the heiress to the Estée Lauder brand and the founder of the eponymous Aerin collection, Lauder’s Beauty at Home is a love letter to the well-lived, well-loved homes of the Lauder family. Detailed millwork, hand-painted de Gournay wallpaper, and muted color schemes pave the way for a cornucopia of #goals inspiration. American beauty at its finest.

Flicking through this book is as soothing as a trip to Scandinavia. Niki Brantmark, founder of popular interior design blog My Scandinavian Home, has curated gorgeous photographs of homes across Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland. This book focuses on how Scandinavian interiors are naturally inspired by light: given the abundance of light in the summer and its scarcity in winter, houses are designed to maximise the amount of natural light in the winter, and to allow the inhabitants to enjoy being outdoors during the summer. The book covers a wide range of different types of homes, from minimalist urban spaces to country homes, mountain cabins, beach houses and summer cottages, offering a wealth of Scandi inspiration.  

10. Simple Decorating: 50 Ways to Inspire Your Home by Melissa Michaels: £11.56, Harvest House Publishers

What we love about this interior decor book is that each home featured belongs to a different (real!) person, showcasing a variety of styles from which to glean inspiration. Blogger Anne Sage’s personable prose highlights events in her subjects’ lives that have inspired these eclectic and beautiful spaces, because real homes can tell some pretty incredible stories.

If there’s anyone who can actually turn all of their #decorgoals from Pinterest into reality, it’s Diane Keaton. In this interior design tome, the actress and prolific Pinner documents her process of gathering home inspiration from the site, honing in on her industrial-chic aesthetic, and working with architects and designers to build a brand-new 8,000-square-foot home from the ground up. The pages are also peppered with advice for refreshing and rethinking your own space, both indoors and out. Keaton’s method of home design may be divisive, but it makes for a compelling read.

The Big Book of Chic, by Miles ReddMiles Redd is credited with many a fashion editor’s home, past and present. A mix of Diana Vreeland’s love for color and irreverence, with a lot of tailored sophistication, a Redd interior has its own distinct signature. Beginning his interior design career with names like decorator Bunny Williams, Redd opened his own design firm in New York City in 1998—and people took notice. For a decade, Redd had been the creative director of Oscar de la Renta Home. If you’re looking for elegant whimsy, look here.

This is a beautiful volume by paint and wallpaper specialist Farrow & Ball, written by in-house colour guru Joa Studholme and head of creative Charlotte Cosby. The book features inspiring shots of beautiful houses around the world, encompassing a wide range of different decorating styles. We thought it was particularly useful how it offers an in-depth look at all the different shades of the colour wheel and their effect on interiors, alongside helpful tips for how to work with paint, primers and undercoats, and suggested colour combinations. It also provides interesting insight into how painting floors and stairs can really transform a home.  

You can talk the talk when it comes to interior decorating, but once kids come along, that’s when the major changes begin in the home, and they don’t slow down for a while! Authors Sherry and John Petersik know all about this transition from personal experience as the parents of two children. The home becomes less reflective of the self, and more representational of the whole family — but that doesn’t mean aesthetic and personal flair have to go right out the door! Meeting at the intersection of style and function, this beloved blogging duo breaks down how to make the same home space adapt to accommodate the needs of your own growing family.

5. The Scandinavian Home: Interiors Inspired by Light by Niki Brantmark: £19.99, Ryland, Peters & Small

If you live in a home with plentiful color, this tabletop tome is a study in simplifying your palette.

Magnetic writing from the likes of Hamish Bowles and Marina Rust and iconic photography from Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino, and Horst P.

Alyson Mowat, who hosts popular indoor gardening workshops in London, shows how you can use greenery to create atmosphere in your home or workspace. The book features 20 projects (with quirky names such as “It’s A Concrete Jungle Out There” and “Plant-O-Saurus”), to help you plant and take care of your own botanical creations, and includes helpful gardening tips, as well as advice about how to choose the best plants for the space and for your abilities. All projects include step-by-step instructions and helpful illustrations.

If you aspire to have the kind of home that looks like each piece was carefully selected by a personal decorator, the way to make that dream a reality is by seriously rethinking your storage solutions. This new book from the editors at Remodelista is a great resource for minimalists and maximalists alike, as it lets you apply their new rules of organization to your own living style.

This wonderful book features wallet-friendly ideas for how you can spruce up your home without needing to spend too much time or effort.

In the era of Pinterest and Instagram (hello, new bookmarking feature), it’s easy to find inspiration with a flick of the index finger. But Luddites, fret not: The act of poring over glossy magazines and art books is far from obsolete. Holding a big, glossy book and turning page after beautifully illustrated page while cuddled up with a hot cup of tea can simply never be replicated with a screen—and anyway, it’s also rare to find photos from important, classic design books among the onslaught of digitally whitewashed photos of twinkly lights and hot cocoa that fill most social feeds. Here, six essential coffee-table books that every interior design enthusiast should own.

Sikes’s Beautiful really is just that. Organized by color scheme from the man who heralds the hashtag #blueandwhiteforever, Sikes even handwrites some of his personal tips in the margins of this gorgeous tome, making it feel like you’ve stumbled upon a personal diary or field guide. An instant classic.

Styling a beautiful space isn’t just about placing the furniture in the right spot or strategically hanging a piece of art. It’s more about the intangible elements, like the mood, the scent, and familiarity that makes it a special place where you’d want to spend your time. Interior designer and blogger Lauren Liess divides her thorough “field guide” for decorating beginners into three parts to help you consciously consider every room in your home and find the best ways to make it come alive.
