Get Your Read On

Yesterday I posted about my love for books, and in particular the adorable literary-inspired clutches by p.s. Besilos, so today I thought why not continue down this path and talk about bookshelves?  This is one of my absolute favorite design elements in a home; it always adds so much character and personality to a space.  I love going to a persons house and seeing what books they read -- it is like taking a peek into their heart.  I understand why everyone likes their e-readers so much {it's much more convenient on vacation to just slip in your bag versus lugging around multiple hardbacks} but personally I will always buy books, in part because I love the feel of them in my hand as I read, but also so that one day I can hopefully have an entire library like the above!

More bookshelf goodness below!

  1. One day I want a bookcase wall like these where I would need one of those cool ladders with the wheels to get to all of them! That would be so much fun! =)
