Even your random assortment of books-in-need-of-a-home are stylish. Mine would be all glitzy covers and dogeared paperbacks!!! x

How is it that all your books are beautiful and vintage too? I always look for nice colours, but some great books have awful ones! Maybe I need to do some re-covering?

I love books, we live one year in our apartment and we still don't have any shelf, so our books are in boxes. Poor lovely books, I must let them free as you did!

We also have books piled everywhere. I feel sad whenver I go to houses that don't have books. They are the soul and inspiration of house. xx
