Can Your Kindle Do THIS???

It’s no secret I adore books.  Not just reading them, but using them as decor in my home and the homes of my clients.  They are such a great way to express your interests and your creativity.  Isn’t it ironic that coffee table books can be stacked to make a side table?

 

There’s all kinds of ways to display and express yourself with books.  Books are art, don’t you agree?

 

This is one of my favorite images, probably because it incorporates 3 of my favorite things:  books, the color turquoise, and Anthropologie!

 

Experimenting with the way you display books can be an artistic statement – grouping by color always looks fabulous.

 

This is adorable – I am definitely creating a book Christmas tree next year, faux snow and all!

 

Kindle-schmindle.  Give me the REAL thing anyday.

Finally! Someone who shares my opinion about real books! We have PILES of books that are just waiting to be arranged by color once we have a full-wall bookshelf…in our new home, of course 🙂

Kristie – I just adore books, too. Especially the vintage ones. Personally, I find cookbooks to be the most interesting. I LOVE the cultural insight they provide. They are like flashbacks in time. Home design books aren’t bad either. 😉

I soo want to make that xmas tree next year. How clever!

Hey Kristie, I love this post AND real books! Ha ha! They’re just so great to read and decorate with. I’m particularly taken with the photo of the blue & white books in the store window. I enjoy your blog so much.

Warmly, Michelle

I am officially Nerdy – Geeky – whatever you want to label it. The books in my house are grouped according to the Dewey decimal system categories and alphabetically by author. If it makes it any worse my spices are also alphabetized.

Lee, I have my closet color coded, my shoes lined up from highest heel to flat, and my apps on my iPad alphabetized. My books are color coded with largest to smallest on each shelf. I totally relate!

LOL. Thought I was unique. My closet is also color-coded. And then I group things in kinds. Dresses, skirts, slacks, et cetera. And about my books. I have a three-piece wall unit. I group my books by size… with largest on either end, and the smaller books in the center, mixed in with decorator. And my coffee table books are them according to their placement. In my guest room (when I had a guest room) were vacation and holiday themed books. Books to take you away. On my deck are gardening and botanical books. Art books in the living room… Read more »

Oh, I meant to say that Smaller books are in the center, mixed in with decorator accessories. And coffee table books are grouped according to their placement… dependent on the room. LOL. Always a perfectionist.
