I love reading a good book. I love my home to feel cozy, comfortable, and be a place where I can curl up with a good book, a warm blanket, and a cup of coffee (or tea, I love ’em both.) I probably should have married a carpenter, for I dream of wall to wall bookshelves and lots of built-ins.
I have several Pinterest boards where I have collected images of my dream home. Not surprisingly, most contain images of books. I have gathered together a few of my favorites to show the many different ways to incorporate books into your home. I am not a fan of color coding books – so that only pretty red covers are allowed in the house, or taking the time to recover books in plain paper, or turning books spine inward, all of which seems to send out in big letters “I DON’T ACTUALLY READ THEM – THEY ARE JUST FOR LOOKS.”
Well, I DO actually read them, or at least plan to read all of them. I don’t have a lot of free time right now, but soon…..
Looking at the photos you may come to see a tendency towards English country or French country. That’s me. Thus the tea AND coffee.
