15 Clever Ways to Decorate with Books and Book Pages

Some may look at books and can’t wait to dive in and read them. I look at books and try to figure out how to decorate them!  When looking for ideas on how to style my entryway with my Vintage Theater Chairs, I came across this picture from Home Bunch. I just love the whimsical way the pages seemed to float on the wall, much like reading a book takes you away, if you read them 🙂

This one is pretty easy, rip off the book covers and tie together with some lace ribbon.

I hope that you enjoyed this compilation or Book and Book Page Decor and it got your creative juices flowing.  Last year my parents sold a building that had a complete encyclopedia set and a set of law book spanning from the 1800’s to the early 1990’s and I am kicking myself now for not keeping some of those books. Oh well guess I will just add books to my list of garage sale items.
