~ decorating with books


This photo from a past post reminded me how much I love decorating with books. I love that color coordinated stack!

I have an unusually large amount of books in my home. I was just visiting my mom in Florida, and asked her if she had gotten the new William Yeoward book, Blue & WhiteI just bought it and think it is amazing. 

My mom said she couldn't fit one more book in her house. (Yes she could..)  I get what she means, but I continue to buy the newest inspirational design books! 

I love this colorful collection of Barefoot Contessa cookbooks in my kitchen...




I enjoy the art of putting stacks together that make sense to me...






I love this collection of round boxes on this stack of books...







I love the pastel colors in this stack...


Yes, these are all in my house. This is alarming.















A lifetime of collecting really shows up in these images! Although I knew I had plenty of books to photograph, I didn't realize just how big of a role books have played in my decorating until I uploaded the pics to this post.

I have an entire page of inspiring book images on Pinterest... here
I just love these stacks arranged by color...



My friend has a darling space in her home with children's books arranged by color. It is so charming! I'll try to share a pic on Instagram some day...

I have had great luck mixing new, favorite design books, with deeply discounted books from the clearance table. You'd be surprised what you can find in the sale section at bookstores. Sometimes, I am just looking for the color of a binding, or a pretty cover. They are not always read from cover to cover...

Something about the crisp, fall air, makes organizing books sound like an exciting activity! 

Happy October!
