while waiting for my dentist, i was reading a recently checked out book from my local library (love that place). he walked in and remarked, “you gotta step into the 21st century and get a kindle or an ipad! who reads books anymore?!?” i quickly retorted–“i read books, i keep it real!” this started a ten minute back and forth with him taking a pretty strong position about the wonderful world of ipads. my last and strongest argument was, “books are pretty. you can’t put an ipad on a shelf.” case closed.
this my dear is how you decorate with books:
i love how the books are the only color in the room
make a bedroom cozier by displaying your favorite books
console tables are a great place to store books, weaving them into the color scheme provided by eclectic artwork
don’t forget coffee table books–your guests will thank you
the next time a bourgeoisie ipad reader gives you a look of condescension, share this:
