Every home should have: Books

There is only a handful of things that would make a house become a home other than books.  It lends the house a life and intimacy of its own.  The thing I miss the most from our previous home is our beautiful black bookcases filled with books and magazines ranging from different subjects that covered everything from Design, History, Bestsellers to even fun books like “How to be like Audrey”.  They have this magical touch that makes them look good in any type of display either piled up on the floor, on top of a table, or in bookcases. Yes, every home should have books.  Enjoy!

  • I'm with you! I can't imagine a home without books. Right now I have them on almost every surface in my house. I'm planning to convert one of my bedrooms into an upstairs sitting room with bookshelves on two walls. I can hardly wait!

  • I have so many books I had to start placing them in my dining room too! I love them! Wonderful images,

  • Dearest Julie,
    Rest assured, our home has PLENTY of books. We both are writes and readers.
    Great subject and it should become more the norm!
    Hugs to you,
