Bookish Decorating

I’m working with a couple of clients right now on decorating projects that involve bookcases and so have been perusing Pinterest for inspiration…

I suppose you could pull the curtain here to change the setting…

This room has been an inspiration to me for quite a while…

So interesting the way the bookcases turn the corners…

Tables covered with pretty cloths stacked with books…

Yes please…

Pretty pops of apple green…

Delightful…

Looks like I got so carried away with bookish inspiration that I’d better split this post into two!

I’m all in for bookish decorating…

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Love all of these home libraries!!! Can’t live without books!!!

  3. I prefer bookshelves decorated with BOOKS. When the shelves are over styled (IMO) it adds visual clutter….which is wonderful IF that’s the only focal point in the room. But with other things…fireplace, paintings, styled coffee tables, etc….a bookshelf containing things which are primarily for display competes with the rest of the room. Regular books, used, loved, and collected add warmth without competing with the rest of the room. This is not to say they should be shelved without thought for balance, maybe even color blocking…but a pleasant way to let the eyes rest.

  4. What on earth was that room with the book pages open and the books turned backwards? I really don’t understand the statement being made there unless it is a cavalier disdain for the bookish.

    Many of these other libraries are quite wonderful. I can tell they actually read their books or at the very least have created a space where readers can enjoy them. My favorite libraries suggest a womb room, where one may cuddle in comfort and be transported to a different place and time by the love of a good book, whether it’s a favorite classic or the Bible.
