What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Front-facing bookcaseToo many books are just too gorgeous to hide away, spine-facing, on a bookshelf. Many children’s picture books have beautiful covers that are mini works of art, and investing in a front-facing bookcase can brighten up a room no end, as seen here. They also make it easier for little ones to hunt for much-loved titles. Don’t just save these bookcases for kids, though. Many adult books these days have equally lovely covers, with some believing the e-reader has triggered a golden age of book design, as paper versions compete for sales.
6. On displayBeautifully illustrated books should not be stacked away from sight when they can add so much delight to a child’s room. Artwork on the walls simply isn’t needed in this colourful space; just paint the walls and ceilings with blocks of contrasting colours and add some simple shelving. Rotating the selection every week or so will turn Junior into a book lover for life.
