Babying my Books

As much as I hate moving I love the clean slate it offers in terms of decorating. One thing I was very keen to get to was the bookshelf. Who knew bookshelves could be decorated, right? But oh yes, they can most certainly be jazzed up! I first was introduced to the idea by Emily at Cupcakes and Cashmere, then I came across these gorgeous built in bookshelves in Lonny and decided it was a project I needed to take on.

After all, I love my books. I'm not as avid a reader as I'd like to be (I too often get distracted by that lousy old silver screen) but I cherish the books that have brought me enough pleasure to keep through half a dozen moves. What's so comforting about actually owning books when all the information you need is so readily available on the world-wide-web? I guess I'm attached to the stories, the characters. Even though I'll remember these stories easily enough I like having them on hand; to peruse and reread an inspiring quote whose meaning changes as I go.

  1. I agree that moving does offer a great clean slate for decorating! My bookshelves could sure use a spruce.
