TWEAKS+inspiration : Decorating with Books

July 19, 2020

Gotta admit.  I'm looking for things to do around here as we live through 2020.  My attention has turned to books.  If you're like me, you've got plenty of books.  Is there a way to use them as design elements?   Fortunately, layering books in rooms is a hot trend. Let's look at some creative ways to get our books off the shelf.

Books as a bedside table.  Are they spray painted?  Glued together?

This headboard might not be very practical, but I Iike the idea showcasing favorite passages in books.  As you can see, books are a wonderful addition to any room.  Editing your collection, removing (but saving) dust jackets and enjoying a row of books might be the best idea. After all, buying faux books (book spines attached to blocks of wood) and wallpaper that looks like shelves full of old books are two decorator tricks. Seems like nothing's better than the real thing.
