If someone had to ask me my favorite staple piece of decor, it would definitely be a book. No home is complete without a good set of “coffee table books.” Many people have the illusion that books are meant for just coffee tables and bookshelves; however, they can also be displayed in SO MANY different ways.
Check out my how-to tips below on the different ways you can style with them:
Displaying books under decor:
This is one of my favorite design tips. Take a stack of two to three books and place them under a piece of decor. This works great on furniture such as console tables and bar carts.
Showcase books on an etagere:
Buy an etagere and display 1-2 of your favorite works. I usually like to display books that complement the rest of my interior. For example, I showcased a black book with gold & white accents on the cover.
Featuring a book on a book stand:
A book display is a perfect way to showcase your favorite book (or favorite pages!) It’s modern, classic, and a definite conversation starter.
Stacking books under a lamp:
Give your lamp some extra height and glam by layering a few books underneath.
Layering books on the floor:
This is one of my favorite ways to display books as it’s so unique and a great way to turn a bland floor into a decorative accent. You can layer as many as you want either vertically or horizontally!
Stacking books on a chair:
Quirky- but so cute. If you have a char that isn’t used often, turn it into a feature statement by stacking some books on the seat and adding a chic vase on top!
