Book-Inspired Home Decorating

Decorating your home is a way to put your own, personal touch on your property! It is what makes the home, your home. While simplistic additions and touches of a colour palette can go a long way, today we are going to share with you some ideas that go above and beyond. Ideas that are, one might say, absolutely inspired.

This article we are focusing on all of you lovers of the written word! The adventures you have read have captured your heart, encouraged you, and stuck with you since you were a child. Why not celebrate the stories you love? They were big parts of your life, and now they can be a big part of your home. Here are some inspired ideas for bringing elements you loved in your favourite books to your home…

Let’s start with a classic: “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C.S Lewis. Everyone checks the back of wardrobes after reading those beloved stories, and everyone who says they don’t are lying. Why not cover a doorway with a wardrobe, fill it with fur coats from Value Village, and have a magical entrance to a secret room?

If you loved reading fairytales as a child, chances are you will want to read fairytales to your child. Why not turn their bunk-bed into a castle? They will instantly become the Prince or Princess of their bedroom!

If you can’t decide what book you want to honour, don’t pick at all! If you have a wooden staircase, buy some paint and get creative!

A final tribute to literature? Invest in a dictionary, and turn the pages into wallpaper! This is great as an accent wall in a study or living room. It is incredibly easy and cheap to do! Plus, you’ll never have to check an online dictionary again. You’re welcome.

Have fun with home decor! You’ve waited your entire life to own your own home; make it yours.
