Fall Nesting Tip #15: Bring in the books!
You can use books to decorate in every room in the house, including the kitchen and dining rooms! I adore being surrounded by books because it means I can truly LIVE in every room of my home. A room without books feels too stiff for my liking. Books make your home feel warm, cozy and inviting.
I love to be able to plop down on a chair in any corner and find a big stack of books nearby to peruse. Plus it makes me look all smart and intellectual.
I really love books in the kitchen. I put a bookcase in the island of my previous kitchen and it was one of the most talked about and used features of the room. I’m sure you are sick of seeing these old photos but here it is again, my beloved kitchen (below)!

In my new kitchen so far I am using this cabinet for books (below) but you can bet I’ll add more once I start seriously decorating and adding my own personal touches to the room.

I also love the idea of a library / dining room. Dining rooms typically get such little use, why not fill up those walls with a library of books? Very charming!
Books inspire me to nestle in with a big mug of hot chocolate and read the afternoon away.
So whether you have them in built in bookcases, freestanding cabinets or just stack your books on floors or tables, books are the perfect fall decorating accessory! You can buy great hardbacks at Goodwill so if you don’t have enough books, start collecting them!
