If there’s anything I love more than a coffee table book, it’s travel coffee table books… y’know, for those “need to go somewhere now” inspiration moments! I also love to collect coffee table books that not only inspire me, but remind me of a place I have been before (and have subsequently fallen in love with). So with that in mind, I give you Paris first up!
This book is like, the ultimate mood board x a million. Exactly as it sounds, Paris in colour is a collection of photographs taken by Nichole Robertson who has a serious eye for catching those special moments in time + little intricate details that often go overlooked in travel photos.
For the stylish jet setter type, there really is no book that is more a necessity for the coffee table than Kate Spade’s “Places to go, People to see”.
Brandon Standon’s blog is adored by the millions, so it was only a matter of time before he released a coffee table book of his collections of faces + stories. If you love New York, this is about as deep as you can get to really understanding the many different heartbeats on a street that somehow, in some way, manages to beat the same beat.
This one is in the title, as the New York Times go and explore different cities within the timeframe. It should come at little surprise that yes, it was a NY Times best seller.
If you’re into lists and accompanying photos for your inspiration, look no further than National Geographic’s collection of the World’s Best Travel Experiences.
