Decorating With Books

When accessorizing for clients, I ALWAYS include books. I don't think there is a more charming accessory than simply stacking unique, nice-looking books on a side table, coffee table, or in a bookcase.

Group books with other eye-catching accessories that are varying heights. Generally, group an odd number (three is usually good) together.

Another great idea is to hang art over the bookcase. Shh!! The art could hide clutter...

And wouldn't grouping books by color really make a bold statement in a room?

There are all sorts of bookcases available.
This Herringbone Spine Bookshelf is from West Elm.

I love this idea! These little shelves are made out of books!

  1. Such pretty images! It was so fun to see you the other night. :)

  2. I agree with you about decorating with books. Every table or shelf that I style always includes at least one book. It helps when they have a lovely cover!
