Decorating with Books

When I was looking at the design trends for 2014, it was said that books reduced to decor was on its way out.  It was called a “statement in not reading.”  I disagree.  I think there are many books that you can read and then enjoy as decor.  I feel like there is nothing more personal than decorating with books.  It tells a story of who you are, where you have been, and what your preferences are.

Books are so versatile.  You can style them on a bookshelf, stack them high and use them as an end table, or use them to give height and dimension to a coffee table or other vignette.  If you have been reading this blog for any period of time, you will know how I use books in many of my shoots and vignettes.
