Must Have: Coffee Table Books Part 2

So the books in this post were supposed to be included in my post last week but then I realized had included way too many books - yes, I admit I'm a bookaholic (yes, I made that up).  I decided to break the post up into two section,  so these are my favorite interior coffee table books - I had a random category too but just decided 3 posts on the same subject might be overkill.

I love having these books around so I can casually flip through and gain inspiration from their pages - Design*Sponge at Home is probably the best one for this - it has some great DIYs.  My favorite book in the post though is the Elements of Style book - if that spine already doesn't pull you in then Erin's blog will definitely convince you to pull the trigger.  The only bad thing though is that it's preorder only right now, it isn't released until October :( - don't worry though, I preordered mine like the day it was available....

Do you prefer interior or fashion books - or are you like me and just went them all?
