Every year I set aside a few extra dollars to buy my favorite design and décor books. I have a few favorites that are so inspirational and are great for decorating the house too.

Domino: The Book of Decorating


I love decorating with books! Books are great way to add height to a vignette, fill a blank space, and create layers. Books are my favorite way to add interest & height and are the first items I grab when adding decor to a room or space.

I prefer to use books with neutral spines facing out, but if they don’t have a neutral spine I turn it around. I also stack my books largest to small, with largest on the bottom. But I have seen some beautiful shelf styling with books of various sizes, like this one.

I do the same with my paperback books, in fact I just rip the covers right off of those bad boys. Most of these books I have read already, during a phase where I picked up a book from Target every week. Now I’m more into audiobooks thru Amazon and Audible, but whatever it was fun while it lasted and now I have lots of books for my decor. 🙂
