Can you ever really have too many books? I ask myself that question quite a lot, as I literally have them stacked everywhere. Many are books I’ve yet to read and even more are books that I want to read again. I can hardly convince myself to get rid of books – I love them. I love them for reference, for sharing, for decor. There is just so much history and knowledge to books, which lends them perfectly to styling a room.
Of course, not all of my books are as beautiful as the ones available at our antique show, but I think that a few of those antique ones mixed in goes a long way. I’m always reminded of one of my favorite books, “The Great Gatsby” when I see rows and rows of books available for sale. I don’t think that you should avoid buying old books, just because of Gatsby, but I do think that’s all the more reason to open them – and peruse the pages within. After all, there are great words to be found in many of these old classics!
Where do you place books in your home for usefulness and decorating?
design books like “Segreto” are some of my favorite coffee table books!
these are simply stunning!
