BUNCHES OF BOOKS

Since I have started to really fine tune my apartment and office for a photoshoot this week (which I can't wait to share about later!) I have begun to pay attention to the things that really make my "house" a "home". One of them is the stacks of books and magazines. I have always loved these, and have really implemented the look in my own little vignettes, but I have also realized what I love so much about the look..


these stacks hold books that are close to you, books with memories, travel destinations,  and inspirations...




they act as the perfect tabletop for a sweet flower arrangement...




they fill up spaces in a way other items simply can't...




and as a little tabletop for other items too...



they are a side table unlike any other...



and a source of inspiration when you just want a lazy afternoon in bed...

with all of these lovely ideas, I may just have to add a little stack to everyroom!

Books definitely make a room feel warmer! They have so many different uses, and I love when they are used creatively in decorating. I have a stack of books on my night table with my alarm clock on top. Rearranging and using books in a unique way in your apartment is also a great way to refresh the interior of your home without spending any money!
