Creative (and affordable!) ways to show off your books

We say you should judge a book by its cover! Books not only say a lot about who you are but also they're great conversation starters. What's more, they add a wonderful design element to your rooms. Why not show off your intellectual side and display some of your favorites? We’ve come up with some affordable ideas to get you booking it, and you won’t even need to buy a bookshelf!

Fill The Basket

Stack your books in a cute basket. Choose solid wood, wicker, or even dainty metal. Perfect for that country chic home with a rustic flair!

Dress The View

One thing we all have are window sills! Take advantage of this precious area and decorate it with your books. You might even add some plants. This strategy will maximize design without sacrificing space.
