I'm not going to lie: I love books. LOVE them. Sorting through our books last night after painting these bookshelves felt like a family reunion or a good cry with a closest friend. I may or may not have hugged 1 or 2 books.

Some decorators turn all their book bindings to the back so the neutral pages are all that one sees. I admit, I ❤️ this look! But it's just not practical for us...for me...because I need to see familiar, inspirational titles. I want our books to draw you in because most of them are Just. That. Good.

I'm so happy I lightened the inside of these shelves. Previously gray, they're so much brighter now. I also simplified, purged, and restocked for a cleaner, fresher spring-like look. Ahhhh. Latte time ☕️! #stylingshelves #bookshelves #stylingbookshelves #farmhousedecor #farmhousehappy #farmhousestyle #sittingroom #ilovebooks #readingisthebest #allmimsyhome

  • drgayleWhat good are books if you can't see the titles? To me, reading the titles is like greeting old friends.....
  • allmimsyhome@drgayle Exactly! I know some decorators buy used books just to stock spaces beautifully, but ours most definitely get read.
  • shellibelly_I like the sketch of the lamp and the "sisters picture." Did you draw it?
  • allmimsyhome@shellibelly_ I did! My first charcoal drawing from an art class a few years ago. Funny you recognized the "sisters" in it:)
