Decorating With Books

I'm a big Pinterest fan. Visuals often inspire blog posts, and this one illustrates that fact. I've been seeing pins about decorating with books - everything from traditional libraries to Christmas trees made from books.

Here are a few pictures of my book nook. I love the way the volumes express my interests. :)

This room is decorated in soft yellows with varying shades of blue. The books add a pop of color to keep the room from looking too matchy-matchy.

I found the needlepoint footstool in an Amish Country antique shop. The colors were perfect for the space.

The sunny location partially inspired the color scheme. I also saw a bedroom in Better Homes and Gardens with blue and yellow and thought it would be perfect for my home.

Writers and Readers:  Do you have a writing/reading nook? Do you use books to decorate in unusual ways? Please share. 

P.S. I'm not a photographer, so please excuse the amateurish pictures.

I love your book nook Susan, I just want to collapse in that chair and read.... We have a whole wall in our house covered with books, but I do have a to-read-pile on a little table where I usually sit to read.

Hi Marja - Thanks! I love books, and enjoy seeing them arranged on shelves.
