Decorating a Library with Antique Books: A Collection of Waverly Novels

Everyone has different tastes.
But if you've been blessed with
a great library room
or awesome set of bookshelves,
you're going to need to do
something with them.
 

 
This is quite a pop of color.
Truly an artist lives here.


Someone who enjoys the facts
collected these antique encyclopedias.
Or, they just liked how they look all together!

Here's what to do if you enjoy
having doo dads instead of books!

 
I tend to lean toward
 the lighter
side of things.
Let the books be
the objects of art.


 
Look at this grand display!
 
 
 
Here is my newest collection
of books, Waverly Novels,
 available in my
Bella Rosa shop, here.
 

 Beautiful designs, all of the
wonderful classic titles.

 
A set of 25 for a well
designed, antique library.
 
 
Now, if you'll excuse me,
I'm heading into "the study"
to lose myself in a world
of reading.... enjoy the day!

Hi! You were the link before me on the Keeping it Simple link party. I am stopping by to say hi! I love books, but I live in a one bedroom apartment so at this time having a dedicated library room is not really something I would be able to do. But I hope to be able to have an office/library in the future! Thank you for sharing!

Cheers,
Julia

Wow - so many gorgeous displays of books! It is the one thing I miss now that I mostly buy digital books.

Aren't you just drawn to a wall of books! That first photo reminds me of our daughter - she organizes her books by the color of their spine. She said she always remembers what color a book is. :-)

Ahhhh, my dream house would have a study, or library! LOVE the 4th photo and the last one- classic! I enjoy my nook, but treasure actual books that I can hold, read and smell. :)
Happy Easter~

Wow, some really great libraries. Books are definately a beautiful display piece. I love buying vintage ones to use in my vignettes. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
