Books! I love to read, and I also love to collect interesting books. Books on travel to places I have either been or want to go. Books on history. Books on people. Some of these books I like to leave out to peruse through from time to time. I have found that books make beautiful spots in our home to decorate with because they add flair and dimension. Having my favorite books out on display makes me happy. Books on places I want to travel helps me remember why I work hard and where we want to go.
It’s also fun to have books on where we have already been. I love making little notes in them to remind us of special things. I even have a basket full of books I’ve journaled in to remind me of special times and memories.
Another kind of book I love are books on decorating! When I can find one that interests me, you can bet I buy it to put with my collection. Then, on rainy days when I am looking for something to do around the house, I can find myself sitting with a cup of my favorite beverage and just skimming the pages, dreaming and coming up with ideas of new things I could do around my home.
We all have books on learning and motivation, right? I have my favorites out on display in my office that I can grab for quick reference! I even have a couple of my daily go-to’s right on my desk.
If you have books that you are not sure what to do with, or perhaps are just sitting in boxes somewhere, pull some of your favorites out and put them on display. Mix them in with your decor! Make the most of your books! They really do add to your decor spaces and the bonus is they typically have a wealth of information we can enjoy!
