All Books Linked Below:
One of my favorite easy and relatively inexpensive ways to decorate is with books. Many of these books are under $20 and can make a big impact on your mood when you see the colors, images and titles.
Do me a favor and please scroll up to the photo with Mark on our kitchen counter. Ok, now put your hand over the basket of books. Do you see what a big difference that book makes in giving the space character and a pop? Cool!

How to Style with Books
1. In a basket
I have this wire basket in our kitchen and fill it with the cookbooks I’m currently into. I swap out the front one depending on the mood and color scheme I’m feeling.
Stack odd numbers of book or line up a bunch on a shelf display.
3. Layered with Objects
Add a pretty candle and a decorative object (keeping odd numbers of things in each group) to make a little design vignette. I found these beads at the Long Beach Flea Market from a guy selling tons of sea glass and African textiles. I love to stack potted plants on a book pile too. Get crazy, ok? Ha!
I also love to give pretty books as gifts!
Have fun and let me know about any other beautiful books you love!
