Decorating with Pretty Books {Interiors}

Monday, July 16, 2018

Welcome to a new week friends!  As I continue to beautify my home for the season, I wanted to chat about another element in design that can amp up your space within the blink of an eye .... and that's with decorative books!  Regardless of where you place them, your coffee table, bedside table or use them to showcase your favorite perfumes, they are a simple decorative element that works with any and all spaces. 

Personally, I like to select books with neutral illustrations and photography on the cover and spine, which includes colors like white, black, beige, and (yes) blues and pinks. It makes coordinating your books simpler when stacking them in groupings of 2 or 3. So, how do I like to style them? Stack books flat on coffee tables and when using them as a platform for decorative objects ... always remembering to place the largest book on the bottom, followed by smaller books leading to the top. 

It's also a lovely look to display a small group of books standing tall between beautiful bookends (like this marbled one I have at home) or against a pitcher vase on a bookshelf.   I selected some of my favorite hardcover books I like to decorate with in the genres of style, floral design, and in cooking. So, take your pick and happy shopping!  


Warmly ~

  1. Lovely post! One of my favorite table books we have is one with Frank Sinatra on the cover. Can't remember when or where I got it, but I love it. I am intrigued with your Victoria Beckam's pick....I haven't seen that one. Thanks for sharing.
