Sometimes it can feel like designer coffee table books are a dime a dozen. Yes, the photos are gorgeous and the clothes to-die-for, but they somehow all seem to leave a bit to be desired. Not so with Tory Burch's new (and first) book, Tory Burch In Color, which has just skyrocketed to the top of our must-buy list—and it's not just because we love the designer.
Tory Burch In Color ($50; amazon.com) is filled with vibrant images of everything from pets to pottery spanning from the earlier half of the 20th century to the present and they're all organized by color. Needless to say, you don't have to be into fashion to be into this book (although there's tons of it if you are). Read on for three reasons why you should buy Tory Burch In Color, even if you're not obsessed with fashion.
1. Endless Interior Design Inspiration
Burch's taste in interior designs, as evidenced by this book, is divine. Tory Burch In Color gives us glimpses into the designer's own Manhattan and Hamptons homes, as well as jealousy-inducing photos of beautifully decorated spaces by interior designers like Billy Baldwin. Whether you just want to feast your eyes on amazing interiors or you're looking to redecorate your own, this book will get your creative juices flowing.
2. Gorgeous Travel Photos
For anyone looking for a temporary fix to a serious case of wanderlust, flipping through the pages of Tory Burch In Color will do just that. The pages are filled with Burch's personal travel photos, including vintage snaps of her mother and father on holiday as well as shots of the Burch clan on vacation. And on the subject of vintage photos, the book is also chock full of glamorous retro shots of Burch's mom and dad, Reva (below, left) and Buddy, which Burch notes offer her copious amounts of design inspiration.
3. Real-World Advice
In Tory Burch In Color, the advice comes in many forms. Throughout the book, you'll find words of wisdom from business leaders, designers, and public figures alike, like Hillary Rodham Clinton, Carolina Herrera, Arianna Huffington, and even InStyle’s own editor, Ariel Foxman, on everything from work-life balance to the best advice they've ever received. Plus, there's a handful of yummy recipes as well as entertaining tips so you can throw a Tory Burch-worthy soirée. And, of course, style tips too!
