In yesterday’s post I shared my bedroom tour with you all (I hope you enjoyed it!) I was so excited to share it with you. By re-decorating my room, my bedroom feels more relaxing and it’s a place where I look forward to coming home to at night.
I get a lot of questions about my bookshelf and my favorite books (especially after I posted this photo on my instagram), so I decided to dedicate a whole post to how I styled my new bookshelf and my favorite books!
When I was first looking at getting a bookshelf for my bedroom, I knew I wanted one that had a lot of space to fill with books! If you didn’t know I am a huge reader. I am the kind of girl who always has a book in my bag, just in case! I immediately loved this one because of the style and the added details, such as the labels. Once I had chosen my bookshelf and assembled it I got to work on styling it.
After spending far too long perusing pinterest for inspiration, I immediately went to Lulu & Georgia to scoop up some essential bookshelf decor. I tried to keep everything within my bedroom aesthetic of light colors with gold and silver accents. I picked pieces like this gold geo sculpture, this gold and white vase (stacked on my Kate Spade notebooks!), and bookends to complement my bookshelf and the rest of my space. I added in these baskets (from HomeGoods) for added storage.
Since I have so many books (this isn’t even half of them!!) I decided to switch up the way I styled them and not place them all together. It’s a great way to make your bookshelf stand out a bit more! Adding decorative objects, like the ones I have adds contrast to each cube. I also couldn’t finish my bookshelf without adding my favorite candle ever to it. It’s the Capri Blue Volcano candle!
I also get a lot of questions about my favorite books, so I wanted to share a few I have recently read as part of my 101 in 1001 list to read 50 books! I’ll be honest, I’m not going to do any reviews on them as I totally suck at describing a book without giving away all the good details haha! But anyways these are all books I have read recently and recommend! Some are girly “easy” reads and others are suspense. I like reading books that allow me to have a bit of an escape after a crazy day or week.
