This fun and funky nursery blends neutral walls and and armchair with a red side table, purple poof, and green chevron rug. Classic children's books become part of the decor on three white floating shelves, and an oversized bunny decal is encircled by colorful pinwheels.
Small, artistically rendered messages are the cornerstone of Effie’s Paper. Kalyn finds ways to offer words of encouragement on everything from notebooks to oversized travel mugs, so it only makes sense that she would reserve a few words for her own space as well. This little bit of black and gold bling adds some style to the bookshelf, combining her first initial with a few words of wisdom to keep her in the right frame of mind.
A built-in bookshelf is artfully decorated with books and pretty accessories, while an adjacent closet provides hidden storage. Dark hardwood floors contrast against the bright white walls of the hallway.
This stylish home office features a ghost console table decorate with books, a metallic picture frame and a stunning white orchid. A colorful painting hangs above the table, adding bold touch to the space.
Metallics add a modern touch to a room without breaking your budget. For table decor under $100, Parker Kennedy Living used a sea urchin from Target and a lacquer green and gold box from C Wonder. They didn't have to buy new books, since the homeowner already owned those, as well as the table.
Matching neutral sofas flank the contemporary fireplace and oversized abstract art. On the opposite wall is an open bookshelf artfully decorated with books, vases and collected accessories. Teal pillows add a burst of color to the neutral space, which opens up to a chic terrace.
Blue-and-white ceramic pieces can give a mantel a country chic yet glam look, like this mantel decorated by Yuni Min. She centered the mantel with a tidy collection of her hardback books. When the pages face front, you don't have to worry about purchasing new books with pretty spines. The bindings bring a bit of color that tie into the pottery. Add a wreath over the mantel (Min made this one) adds more dimension to the focal point.
Matching cream striped chairs sit beside a small glass table in this traditional living room. Light blue throw pillows add a small touch of color to the neutral and wood decor. A large in-wall white shelf displays decorations and books. A small table sits flush against the wall of the stairs leading to the open foyer.
Across from her bicycle, sits another vignette featuring one of Nana Yaa’s favorite decorating accessories: books. While the vase of flowers do a lovely job of echoing the color of the bike, the real star of this area is clearly the walls themselves. The architectural details stretch from floor to ceiling, bringing a sense of character to the entire home.
