To add height to the space and add visual interest to the corner, a wooden book tower was added. This is an excellent way to allow your favorite hardbacks to serve double duty as accessories. The best way to showcase books in a timeless manner is to remove the book jackets, keep them stored away and let the true colors of the books shine.
Book towers filled with vintage books in really bright hues add personality and layers of color to this light-filled space, paired with a huge graphic metal wall clock with white finish and a funky, fuzzy chair to create a reading spot with personality.
By simply adding a book tower to one corner for keeping favorite hardcovers handy and on display, and incorporating a rolling caddy to house art and craft supplies, the space is perfectly equipped to be used for creative and work purposes any day of the week.
Starting with an apartment-sized, three-seater sofa centered on the left-hand wall, Briana and Buzz arranged the space around it to maximize the flow of their loft's living room. They took focus off of the room's lack of space by grounding the area with an oversized area rug featuring a bold, graphic print. Instead of adding a bulky, horizontal bookcase to the spatially-challenged room, the couple opted for tall, metal book towers they placed by in the window. The vertical arrangement instantly turned their cherished photography books and novels into a sculptural focal point while still keeping the collection neatly organized.
In this cozy corner, bins hold stuffed animal friends and blankets; labels secured with clothespins are a cute and flexible way to tag what's inside. Colorful kids' books become part of the visual fun on a tower bookshelf.
Bay windows can be a design challenge. For Jeanine and Bryan they took the opportunity to carve out both a dining and work area in the bay window. A large round dining table is a perfect fit. On the table, which is perfect for both work and entertaining, a dramatic arrangement of branches towers over a collection of favorite books together with a sculpture from artist Murjoni Merriweather.
