I don't know about y'all but I'm a huge lover of books, especially a good design book because we all know I'm a sucker for anything design related. I love how books are not only a good source of inspiration, information and entertainment but are now seen as pieces of art. There are so many different ways you can style books, whether it be in a bookshelf, on the floor, table, etc. to make it a jaw dropping statement in your home. You can color coordinate, stack them in different heights to almost look like a little mountain top, lay them completely horizontal, the list goes on and on and the options are endless. I also really enjoy making little vignettes, you can add some of your favorite trinkets, vases, pictures, etc. to make it more personal. Books can also be really inexpensive! I just recently assisted a designer in putting a book room together and we bought most of the books from our local McCay's Book Store. Check your local book stores because a lot of times they have older books with beautiful covers for only a few dollars!
Today I wanted to share a few of my favorites with y'all, I have actually experimented with this myself numerous times, I'm personally a huge fan of color blocking at different heights. I have one big colorful mountain of books here at my house and whenever I can talk Jamie into taking pictures of our little box, I'll be sure to share. Enjoy and go rearrange some of your books! :)
