Two Creative Decorating Ideas for Book Lovers

Featured on Funkthishouse.com
Add these Unique Pieces to a Book Themed Space

You don't have to spend a fortune building book shelves or adding expensive wood to a room in order to create your book themed space. Instead, add these artistic reading inspirations.

A Staircase Bookshelf Wall Decal

If you've ever wanted to make a statement with your décor, a faux book shelf on your staircase is the way to do it. Hey, money permitting, take it to the next level and create real bookshelves on the backs of the steps. However, if that kind of investment isn't in the cards, be sure to check out how affordable stair art decals are.

If you love color, books and decorating in a non-traditional way, this stair decal is calling your name. It's easy to put up; simply peel and stick. However be sure the surface is clean, dry and smooth. Count your steps first as it comes with 13 pieces. If you have more than 13 stairs, you'll have to order two sets. Also, another nice feature is it's retro nostalgic paper style verses a more modern high definition effect. If you're looking for a more traditional book-shelf art, this works.

A Uniquely Designed Book Side Table


This handcrafted Design Toscano Lord Byron Wooden End Table is stunning in it's craftsmanship and artistic elegance.

If you're not familiar with Design Toscano pieces, you'll be pleasantly surprised with their exclusive home décor sculptures, statues, wall art and furniture. This unique book side table is merely one of over 6000 items available through Design Toscano.

The book side table has a two door opening and a pull out drawer on the bottom. The two-book look on top finishes the overall appearance and gives the piece it's elegance.

It's surprisingly affordable when you consider that each piece is individually handcrafted by Artisans.

Take your love of books to the next level, the easy way.

  1. The staircase decals make me wish I had a staircase again. I really can picture that in our old house - it would have been perfect! In the meantime, I'll gladly settle on the book table. Gorgeous home decor for people who love books!

  2. Clever ways for book lovers to decorate, Barbara. I do mine with 'actual' books... LOL. I have two tall bookcases, one on either side of my bed, plus a total of 7 small bookcases scattered throughout all the rooms in my home. And, they are all filled with books! I DO love my books.

    1. That's fabulous. Love the idea of tall bookcases flanking each side of the bed.

  3. I have long admired the end tables that look like they are made out of books. Not only would I enjoy the storage ability, but I do love the look of leather bound books. I also like the stair decals, but I have carpet on our stairs. I couldn't help but think though how cool those decals would have been on the stairs to the basement in my husband's grandmother's home. Sure would have added some much needed color and interest to her work area.

  6. What will they think of next? Unfortunately, my stairs are carpeted and there are stacks of real books on the edges of many of the steps. I do think the table is lovely.
