New Coffee Table Books

Tomorrow I will be in meetings until early evening so sadly I will have to miss the Young House Love's book signing event at West Elm. Why does it have to be on a workday, sniff-sniff?

I am a big fan of YHL, the adorable and lovable couple and their daughter Clara, their creative DIY projects, and fun & laid back blog style. I pre-ordered the Young House Love book, and I have to say it's one of my favourite design/decorating books so far, probably because I "know" the writers.

I knew the book was going to the coffee table when I finish reading. I tried a few different arrangements and books and here they are:

1. Love the combination of the teal spine from YHL book and the unexpected orange from "Happier At Home".

2. Back to my comfort zone: I swapped in the Restoration Hardware Fall Catalog which has a blue-grey cover.
3. At that moment I recalled a nice coffee table book candidate -- "The Perfectly Imperfect Home". 
4. I decided to remove the book sleeve and reveal the azure blue cover of the "The Perfectly Imperfect Home", and I think I have a winner. 

So which one is your favourite? Do you try to re-arrange your coffee table books often?
