Review: Books Do Furnish A Room | Leslie Geddes-Brown

No surprises here why a book-lover and book-blogger like myself would pick up a book called: Books Do Furnish A Room by Leslie Geddes-Brown.  For the pictures of course!

This beautiful coffee table type book is broken down into chapters along the lines of functionality and rooms of the house.  There are some interesting interior design tidbits disbursed amongst a great deal of logical information and it makes for good reading.

It must be said that the hero of Books Do Furnish A Room though are the stunning photographs that feature on each page.  The owners of the bookshelves and gorgeous libraries are mostly well to do, designers or architects, although I guess these are the types of people an author would come across when sourcing photographs of beautiful bookshelf designs and home libraries.

Books Do Furnish A Room is the perfect book for book-lovers to dip into and I enjoyed drooling over the various styles of bookshelves and dreaming about the day I have that much space for all of my bookish treasures.

My rating = ****

Carpe Librum!

I definitely need to get my hands on this book! I moved into my first house a few months ago and unfortunately still have most of my books in boxes. I've been trying to figure out the best way to store and display them and I think this would be some excellent inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day :)
