Bookworms like us

One of the cool things about being a parent is that you can (re)discover the beauty of children's books. It's the magic of simple stories that hide deep and beautiful metaphors, the strength of fine illustrations that invite your imagination to unleash and also the bond that grows stronger when you're reading together. 

But even to those who won't be tempted by the beauty of reading, books can be really pretty objects that please the eye and decorate the room. So let's see how it can be done, shall we?

How to encourage little bookworms to reach for books? How to simplify navigation between their favorites? And how to bring out the full decorative potential of covers? Forward-facing shelves will do the trick by presenting your little one's library like a gallery.

Another go at forward-facing shelves, here made from Ikea spice racks.

A box-meets-coffee-table kind of furniture will store many books and facilitate browsing (just like vinyls in an old record store).

DIY mobile book-box and book-wagon - just gather your favorite books and bring to the reading nook.

 Speaking of reading nooks, have a look at some cozy little places, perfect for reading and relaxation.
