When I start talking about home decor with friends or in general, the one thing that I always seem to bring up is my need for a home library. I usually get an odd stare, like there is something more important I should be doing with my square footage. But I don't explain or apologize, I love books and that's really what it's all about for me.
There is something so beautiful and homely to me about being surrounded by a ton of old books and magazines (I'm a bit of a hoarder of those as well). So until I get a little corner all to myself, I can enjoy inspirations from other beautifully designed and decorated bookshelves. Here are a few of my favorites:
|Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere|
|Rachel Roy's Bookshelf (complete with her collection of bright yellow national geographic)|
|Chic Shelves via Maison Decor|
|Light and Airy (via apartment therapy)|
