Perhaps it’s knowing that there is depth to the home– that the people who live there have a passion for something or a knowledge of something that others can discover when they come to visit. Or maybe it is just the beautiful rainbow of colors and ideas that make a home feel loved and lived-in. Whatever it is, it makes me happy.
If you can find an empty wall to add a few shelves, and then fill it with meaninful books and treasured family heirlooms, you will create a space that’s comforting and stylish. It is also great for organizing and ridding your house of clutter. Just make sure you only keep around books that inspire you, that you read, that you want to pass along, or that have meaning. The rest can go for some cash at your local half-priced books.
