House Of Baran |  Styling + Coffee Table Books


House Of Baran | Styling + Coffee Table Books

Long time.... no blogging. To say I've been under a whirlwind the last (almost four) months is an understatement but that catch-up is a post all within itself. Some things get sacrificed and the blog has been one of those things and I am ok with it.  I let my online magazine go last summer because I don't have time to keep up with it and I haven't looked back. Writing when I feel the inspiration rather than because I feel I have to. You can't force it. I digress....

Thankfully it's Friday, it's been quite the week and I am ready to kick my feet up this weekend. When I mean "kick my feet up" I mean sit my pregnant ass down during house project breaks. WE HAVE A TON OF THEM but I am documenting them all and will be sharing on Instagram Stories so make sure you're following me @ginabaran .




Today's House Of Baran post is all about coffee table books.  I have done a similar post more than one other time but felt we needed a refresher. Why now? Well because I am refreshing our builtins as we are getting new furniture for the family room and thought I should add some new books to my classic favorites. You can shop some of those under shop tab as well as clicking on the images below! What are some of your favorite styling books?

Here are even more great books!




The holiday season is quickly approaching and November is the time I start making my gift guides.  This year I am still hand selecting an amazing list of amazing gifts you can buy through major retailers for everyone in your family but also curating a special gift guide to introduce you to small businesses that I love. 

Small business Saturday is November 26th this year and not only on that specific day but on everyday throughout the year I am a supporter of small business.

As a small business myself I understand the hard work and dedication it takes to get your brand out there. The big brands out there now like Anthropology, West Elm and Macy's, they were all very small once. 

Each week I will be promoting a group of 5 small businesses. These small businesses are either companies I purchase from regularly or they are just introduced to me. If you are a small business or know of a small business that you would love to share please email me {} or tag them on my Instagram page! 

I will be showcasing small business every weekday for the next few weeks.
