Is your home running low on personality? Feeling nice, but not quite finished? A little blah?
One of the best and easiest ways to add character, personality and a little color to almost any space is with books.
You probably already have some hanging around or collecting dust in your attic.
Of course, books are the foundation of a well styled bookcase.
But they can be so much more.
Use them to elevate a small piece of art.
Or a lamp.
Or a knick-knack.
Or something green.
Try them in your kitchen.
In your entry way.
On your coffee table.
On your mantle.
Or as a sweet centerpiece.
They can even stand in for a side table.
Don’t have many books? Not to worry. They can be picked up for next to nothing at thrift stores, library sales and yard sales.
And did you know that there’s a website, Books by the Foot, that sells them by age, color, or subject? Just in case you’re planning something fabulous like this:
So think of books as not only for reading, but also as your new best friend in accessorizing.
Go ahead, pull them out, dust them off and put them to work making your home more beautiful and inviting.
Cheap+Accessible+Instant Character = Why Wouldn’t you?
