I’m Brandy from BD Design and I’m SO thrilled to be a monthly contributor here on Pinkwhen. Jennifer is amazing and I feel so lucky to be on her team!
I’m sure most of you have already started decorating for fall. If you are anything like my sweet mother, you have had your house decorated for weeks now! I wanted to share with you a simple way to add some FALL CHARM to your mantel or bookshelf by placing OLD BOOKS in the center for the focal point.
Old books just bring a cozy and inviting feeling to a room. I think that is what fall is all about. Being cozy. Add a mug of hot cider with a warm blanket. BOOM, it’s fall!
Head over to your local thrift store and scour the shelves for jewel toned books. I was lucky to that I found all of these books in one place! I tell you I must be living right! 🙂 The books ranged anywhere from $.50 to $1.50 so this a very inexpensive home decor project to do.
Now to the fun part…color coordinating your books! I started with the orange colors then moved to the purples then to the browns and ended with the redish ones.
