Description

Now in paperback, this stylish guide offers a wealth of inspiring photos and ideas for using books as a decorative element in any home. You know that a good book can transport you to another world. But did you realise that books can also transform your home? In the words of legendary designer Billy Baldwin, books are "the best decoration". From grand bookcases in home libraries to casual stacks artfully arrayed on chairs, "House Beautiful" presents countless eye-catching ideas for displaying and arranging your hardcovers, paperbacks, encyclopedias and even valuable first editions to bring warmth, colour and character to a room. From traditional interpretations to contemporary visions, these concepts write a new page in design.show more
