Stacked, nestled, lined up by spine height or colour, and proudly displayed on the coffee table; yes, we love interior design books and this week we reveal seven of our favourite ones that are essential for your collection.

Flicking through pages of interior design books helps stimulate our creative juices and along with coffee, it’s one of our quick 5-minute daily pleasures. Design books are an investment in learning and inspiration. Each book presents key ideas that will make your home beautiful, provide space solutions, and teach you how to use key design philosophies and techniques that are adapted with each designers’ unique style.

If you’re looking for some design inspiration you can’t go past these titles:
