If you love reading (duh!) and you love your home (double duh!), here’s a book you shouldn’t miss. Jammed from cover to cover with photos and ideas on displaying, storing and enjoying your books, it’s compiled by Damian Thompson, books editor at The World of Interiors.
It made me want to search out a few other examples of books in decor.

Clearly a stunning room and custom shelving, but the prolific use of white and single accent color (blue) keep things calm and inviting.

No doubt about it, books are the star of the show here. If you’re going for a look like this, keep the other elements super-simple.
