Literally Beautiful

Decorating with books never gets old...there are so many possibilities, and it really expresses the interests of those that live there.  Some beautiful examples:

Hi Barbara, I so agree...love decorating with books too, so many pretty examples, love that wall of books behind the bed, how great looking, they are such great and easy to use accessories and on top of that I love to read, so its nice to have them at your fingertips.

Books add such great warmth to a room. I cringe when a client tells me they have no books to use for styling. These are stunning rooms! Have a great weekend Barbara:)

Lovely post as always!! Thanks for linking to me :) but technically, I didn't design the room, so it should be linked to my blog... Hope you have a great weekend!

Barbara, I love decorating with books and these are some stunning examples. We are working on a house now from the ground up that we have designed bookshelves on either side of the bed in the Master. I would love that for myself someday.

Oh these are beautiful! I love the office second from the bottom and the way the books have been haphazardly arranged (also spotted the pic of Wills and Kate on the desk - so cute!)
