Home Decor Inspiration: Decorating With Books

Karl Lagerfeld’s housekeeper

recently had a psychotic break after

swiffering these stacks.

Okay, she didn’t.

Oh, man I hope she didn’t.

But I would.

Karl! Shoes!

I just polished that table!

This is not a post about fashion.

It is about books…

living with them,

loving them,

touching them,

devouring them,

displaying them,

and feeling the comfort they

bring to rooms we want to be in.

How cool are modern elastic banded shelves?


I am in a silly mood

and picturing my husband’s face

if I dragged this home and was all

“Honey! Now we have a place for

your collection of  C.S. Lewis!”

Clever, omer.

Still adore how the Preen designers

propped up their telly.

Help me, I remain addicted to

images of their West London home

after blogging about it here.

Womb-like and I WANT.

Have you seen lovely art made from

discarded books on etsy?

I love books.

Especially nonfiction.

Soon I will write one.

I don’t allow myself to keep too many.

So the ones kept are like precious friends.

Today I started The Girl with No Shadow

(sequel to Chocolat).

Read anything special lately? 

Peace to you right where you are.

    I LOVE those book art pieces. I'm dashing over RIGHT NOW to look.

    Oh, and you made me really laugh with your 'Karl! Shoes!'

    You should live closer to me so we could be proper friends. 😉

    How funky those elastic bands are, never seen anything like it! And yes, like Sarah, I'm loving the book ones, just amazing.

    I left a little present on my blog for you, go mosey on over and check it out 😉

    Aren't books great! I love those Graham and Green baroque frames – going to get a few next time I make a trade order 🙂

    Now you've shown that art from old books, I want! "Dream" for me, I build a lot of castles in the air 🙂
