Item Description...
A book lover's guide to home decorating presents dozens of eye-catching ideas for displaying and arranging one's volumes, accompanied by helpful suggestions on how to organize a large collection, situate bookcases in a room for the best effect, make the most of books' visual and tactile qualities, and create the perfect home library in a range of styles.

Publishers Description

From House Beautiful comes a worthy addition to any decorator's library--a stylish guide on making books a part of your home décor.


Opening the pages of a book can instantly carry you off to another world. But did you realize that, open or closed, books can also make your real world--your home--more fabulous? As legendary designer Billy Baldwin pointed out, they're “the best decoration,” capable of bringing incredible warmth, color, and character to a room. 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. Useful tips shed light on how to organize a large collection; situate bookcases in the room for the best effect; and make the most of books' appealing visual and tactile qualities. From traditional interpretations to contemporary visions--such as putting a book on a pedestal as an objet d'art--these concepts write a new page in design.
A Selection of the Homestyle Book Club.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not for Booklovers  Aug 29, 2008
For anyone trying to solve the problem of living with books, Ms. Hueston provides no help. She arranges books by size and color, for what she perceives as visual interest. One of her displays even uses trompe de l'oeil wallpaper to create the illusion of a library! Many of the rooms shown are in architects' houses, "seaside" homes and European castles. Most of the results are cluttered: every surface in every room (including surfaces created by stacks of books) is covered with vases, ceramics, sculptures, candles, flowerpots, fringed shawls and what she calls "cherished possessions." In addition, many of the bookshelves are encumbered with framed prints or hangings that hide the books. Unless you share her flamboyant taste (including an inordinate fondness for the color red) and have a budget to match, look elsewhere.
Many great ideas!  Jun 17, 2008
I loved reading and looking at the pictures in this book! I have a lot of books (and dust-catchers) so needed some ideas on placement. This book shows many different ideas in many different types of room/dining room/family room/study. It really gave me the courage to try some different things! Also, I saw some books I just MUST have.

Decorating with Books  Apr 5, 2008
I am completely satisfied with my purchase. It's the first time and I'll do it again.
Excellent book  Aug 12, 2007
This book shows some stunning rooms beautifully decorated with books. For everyone who loves books and loves decorating it is full of inspiration and ideas.
Books or Elegant Rooms?  Apr 12, 2007
I sent the book back to this site. Was disappointed in it. I expected it to be more about books and less about elegant rooms to put them in. A few books put on a chair or on a table or, obviously, in a bookcase really isn't that imaginative. A good magazine showing displays of collectibles including books does a better job as far as I'm concerned.
