I like books wearing pretty gold detailed bindings.
I think they are beautiful on display.
these photos are actually from a few years ago- and the books and bookshelves don’t
look like this currently.
(We are in process of re-doing some things in the cottage-
and the bookshelves are one of them.)
But I know it isn’t for everyone- and so another option if I don’t have the pages out-
I will display mostly neutral or quiet colors of book bindings for a cohesive look.
In our house- on the bookshelves in our hallway and my office-
and they ones in the hall bookshelves are a bit more curated to be shades of neutral
so as to keep that quiet theme while being easily readable.
more like the bottom shelf on repeat. For this look- I was going for the more is more is more.
yep- you guessed it- that changed since then too- but
I will share how I style plates and pitchers and stacks of pottery goodness next.
