Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From House Beautiful comes a worthy addition to any decorator's library--a stylish guide on making books a part of your home décor.

 

Opening the pages of a book can instantly carry you off to another world. But did you realize that, open or closed, books can also make your real world--your home--more fabulous? As legendary designer Billy Baldwin pointed out, they're “the best decoration,” capable of bringing incredible warmth, color, and character to a room. From grand bookcases in home libraries to casual stacks artfully arrayed on chairs, House Beautiful presents countless eye-catching ideas for displaying and arranging your hardcovers, paperbacks, encyclopedias, and even valuable first editions. Useful tips shed light on how to organize a large collection; situate bookcases in the room for the best effect; and make the most of books' appealing visual and tactile qualities. From traditional interpretations to contemporary visions--such as putting a book on a pedestal as an objet d'art--these concepts write a new page in design.

A Selection of the Homestyle Book Club.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback, this stylish guide offers a wealth of inspiring photos and ideas for using books as a decorative element in any home.
