Decorating with books

A good book on your shelf is a friend that turns its back on you and remains a friend. 

I don't know about you, but i always have piles of books around me. and sometimes even play with them or use them for little vignettes and stillifes around the house. Especially when i want to take photos of little things. So i loved this collection of beautifully styled photos i found at LONNY mag.
They really do get me going somehow ... My son recently said: "The graet thing about books is, that they never look bad, even if they just lie around somewhere!"
Have a sweet midweek - keep cozy and beat these April colds – with books!


  1. Hello Martina,
    You are right. Books are always good companions when it is cold or rainy outside and they make beautiful decor at home.
    I think in Germany you have the same wretched weather than ours in France. Spring is hiding.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to comment on my blog.
    Have a nice rest of the week.

    I would be very unhappy not being surrounded by books....I so agree with you...
