If you need inspiration to declutter and style your bookshelves, our designers practically wrote the book on the subject. Check out 30 of our favorite, joy-sparking, literary vignettes.
If you are anything like us, you’ve spent time binging Tidying Up With Marie Kondo on Netflix and then looking around our home to truly assess what sparks joy. What didn’t spark joy in a lot of people—a recommendation from the tidying svengali to cut your book collection down to only 30.
Marie’s gone on record to say that 30 isn’t a hard a fast rule, which is good because literary types and design lovers were ready to riot in the streets. To celebrate the slight relaxation of her controlled clutter—and to inspire us to actually get to trimming our libraries—enjoy 30 of our favorite, designer-approved book nooks. May you look upon them and thank them for protecting your favorite novels, biographies, and more.
