Collectors at Heart | Design Books


All of us at Elsie Green are collectors at heart: we love to gather pretty things that make our house feel like a home. One of our favorite things to collect is design books. Not only do they look beautiful on your coffee table or stacked up next to your bed, but they are a constant source of inspiration. Whenever we need a fresh idea or just to look at something beautiful, we can always turn to our design library.

We've rounded up some of our favorites for you here. Most are linked via Bookshop, so you can support your local bookstore while you build your collection.
