HOME-SPIRATION: Home Library

Summertime always reminds me of the library, I know weird right? I was always the kid buried in library books and the first to sign up for those library summer reading programs. I have always wanted a bookshelf full of my favorite books (I have all of my original Harry Potter books waiting for this day!), but a whole room dedicated to reading, snuggling up with a good read and a great blanket. Here are my favorite home-spiration images for a home library!

Come on! Who wouldn't want this?

If in the end I can't have a full room, this is the perfect set up!

HOME-SPIRATION: Ladder Shelves

So of course like every interior design junkie I love to watch HGTV and DIY network television shows to get my design fix! David and I have recently been watching Rehab Addict with Nicole Curtis! Love her and how you can follow a house from her first purchase to complete restoration. She LOVES to use every single part of the house and rarely throws anything out. She is always repurposing items. Here is my Rehab Addict inspired post with my favorite home-spiration images of repurposed ladder shelving.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

I love this! I totally want this for our living room!

WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Book Lovers Wedding

Everyone loves a good themed party. But I am not really one for themes at a wedding, but I think there are amazing and tasteful ways to incorporate the things you and your future husband love in to your big day. I recently saw photos on my Facebook feed of a book lovers wedding. The couple were two English teachers who had a passion and love for reading and classic literature and of course classic love stories like theirs. Here are a few amazing photos of hints and flairs of a book lovers wedding without having a full on themed wedding.

REINCARNATION: Hitting The Books

Well I have officially started my summer semester so it is only appropriate that I do something book related!  Here are a few beautiful images and ways that decorators have used books and book collections to make a beautiful space…

books collected all the in the same color is a great way to successfully decorate a bookshelf!

A lot of these books have probably been collected over the years and a lot can be found by scouring garage sales. But there are definitely some ways to recreate these ‘book looks’ with a modern twist!
