Beautiful Ways to Display Vintage Books

Posted by Jenni Szafranski on

I've always had a love for old paper; Especially old books.. The worn edges, faded words and that smell...!

Have you ever noticed the aroma old books have? Slightly musty, slightly dank and soooo good!

I know this probably makes me a big weirdo - But, I'm ok with that..

Vintage books have amazing character as well! As with a lot of old books, the covers have come off or are at least falling off.. And I'll definitely admit to pulling a few off from time-to-time. There is such a raw tattered beauty in the spines of these books.

"History is whispered through worn edges. Unscripted authenticity".

Vintage books add loads of texture and interest to your decor. And since they're cover-less, they're perfectly neutral!

You'll find old books displayed all over our home.. Just don't mind me if I walk near a stack and sniff... ;)

I'd love to know if you use vintage books in your home decor! Leave me a comment telling me how...

Have a blessed day!
