Make Your Home Look Smarter

10 Aug

Decorating with books can make your interior look smarter.

For the most part, we think of books as volumes to read! Books can also be the perfect finishing
touch for an interior design plan.

Books add color, texture and scale. Most of all, they create a point of interest and conversation
for your guests.

Typically we think of books displayed in a home office or library, but they can be used
as a decorating element in almost any room. You can sort them by color, size, topic and more. The
choice is yours.

A variety of book placements can enhance your interior design:
– Beautiful coffee table books can be exhibited in your living room or great room.
– A collection of books with the same th eme – or the same color – can be arranged on
shelves.
– Your favorite books, regardless of the color or topic, can be randomly displayed.
– Large books can be stacked on the floor to create a unique occasional table.
– A selection of valuable first edit ions autographed by the authors can be displayed inside glass
cases for their protection.
– Several books can be stacked on a table, as a base for a flower arrangement or decorative
accessory.
– Cookbooks can be displayed in a kitchen or breakfast nook .
Most people display books they have read – or plan to read. Other people – and some interior
designers – buy selections of books primarily for display.

Think about decorating with books that reflect your own interests, such as: Home and Garden, Art,
Travel, Sailing, Sports, Fashion, History and Nature.

Add some books to your décor this season. It’s a clever idea. For more ideas or help with your
