Coffee table style: 16 great trays and 8 amazing decor books!

It's no secret that I love coffee table books. At Christmas time, the women in my family exchange coffee table books instead of presents. I have stacks everywhere in my house - as I type this I can see 4 separate stacks! Coffee table books, and books in general, are great accessories for decorating and oftentimes overlooked. A lovely stack of books is so simple but can provide a pop of color and visual interest to any room.

Today I am sharing my 8 favorite decor-inspired coffee table books. Not only are all these books incredibly beautiful, but they also are chalked full of great decor information. I love to reference these beauties when I need a little inspiration and all of the books have super useful tips - think, how low to hang a light fixture, etc. You guys, these books are sooo good. Definitely send this post to your husbands if they're looking for some ideas for Mother's Day!

So where are you going to put these beautiful books? Well, I certainly think that you can put a stack of books ANYWHERE in the house - shelves, consoles, desks, etc. - but today we're going to stick to the coffee table. And the base to any good coffee table set up is a tray. You can find trays everywhere these days and they come in all different shapes, sizes and price points. Keep in mind the size of your coffee table when you purchase a tray - you want to make sure that it's large enough to hold some decorative items, like books, candles or plants, but not so big that it dwarfs the coffee table below.

Here are some amazing trays to compliment your coffee tables!
