Mystery Monday, Accent a Room with Books: PAMELA PEKERMAN

I recently picked up a copy of Fifty Bags That Changed the World from HomeGoods for $3.99, as compared to the $20 I’d pay at a regular book store. After reading though most of it this weekend, I carefully layered the book, fan style, on top of three others on my living room coffee table. I, like many, treat books not only as a source of information, but as decorative accents for a table, shelves, an empty wall, etc. Styling with books normally works best with hardcovers, but those can get a bit costly. For affordable options, visit my beloved HomeGoods, check out the sale racks at Barnes & Noble (maybe you wouldn’t buy a book about the moon for $75, but for $20 you can mull it over), also many street vendors sell unique finds for several dollars (if you don’t mind pre-used goods). Ideally, you’re buying something you actually want to read – such a novel idea, right!? But, also consider colors and look for various heights and thicknesses. One thing I love to do is take a plain white wall, mount some ornate white shelves and add color via books. Have some books standing up and others lying flat. Use shoes, candles or mirrored box as book ends for a unique twist.

Accessorizing your body, bedroom & beyond!

I totally agree, books are an extraordinary decoration!
PS. Happy you bought your book cheaper than if you would have at the store!

I love the idea of using shoes as book-ends! Rachel Zoe had some silver metal shoe figurines as book-ends, but an actual shoe somehow completes the look for me. I really like your blog, and started following! I would love it if you would also check out mine-- I just started blogging about a week ago.
Have a great day!
