By far the most popular post on this blog (thank you Pinterest) is What Gives a House Soul? In it, I talk about those things that take a house beyond decorating and inject it with life. To me, those things are art, books, photos, plants and flowers, and putting everyday items on display.
Because it’s such a popular post (and one of my favorite topics too) I thought it would be interesting to do a series of follow-up posts where we could look at each of those things more closely. So let’s kick that off today, with one of my favorite elements of a soulful house: books.
The pictures in this post are examples of my favorite kind of bookshelves: unstyled or at least casually styled, with photos, travel souvenirs, or other objects tucked in among the books.
Enough words, onto the pictures…
