Sometimes I get confused looks from visitors and friends because I keep my books turned right side in like this in my home. But I don't care because I'm absolutely crazy about the uniform, monochromatic look it creates. My home is decorated with muted tones and simplicity just like this space so the mismatch of colorful books just wouldn't work with my aesthetic.
People always ask, "how do you find the book you're looking for?" Call it instinct of a book lover or a person who knows her library inside and out, but I can tell by the color of the paper and the thickness of its pages exactly which book I'm looking at!
I'm so happy I stumbled across this picture because the next time I come across a skeptical visitor, I can show them that I'm not crazy after all, but instead, totally on trend! ;)
