Green Design: Bookcase of curiosities

Creating your own bookcase of curiosities is and should be a fun design project. I think it is a fantastic idea to mix your collection of wonderful things with books. A great way to unify your collection or make a simplified back drop for it is to coordinate your books. If you are a book buyer, like I am, it is hard to display them with their covers - too many colors and too much going on distracting from my treasures. A great way to unify your books is to cover them in one or two different colors of paper, you can write their titles simply on the binding for reference. If you find your collection consists of mostly paperbacks or a combination of both wrap the hardback books and turn the paperback with their pages out.

If you don't have a collection of books you can buy groupings of distressed books to display with your treasures. Check ours out online here. Or you can take up reading!!
