How to Creatively Decorate with Books

Interior Design Tips Books – they’re not just for reading anymore. If you’re a bookworm or library enthusiast, they also make great home décor! They give your home a cozy look and project a sophisticated air.

Read on to learn how to creatively decorate with books:

Curate a coffee table stack

Make your living room look inviting with a stack of well-chosen books in appealing colors. Guests will love having something to flip through when they sit down. Art and travel books work especially well for this idea.

Color-code your shelves

Turn your library into a rainbow when you organize your books by color.

Install shelves in unexpected places

Try putting set-in shelving under a stairway or over a doorway to maximize space and give your home a touch of the unexpected. Bonus: if your fireplace is unused, you can put books there, too!

DIY furniture … made from books

Old books (hint: check your local thrift store) can become part of totally unique furniture. Try using them as the legs of a coffee table, a faux-headboard or the base for a lamp.
