Bookshelf at D’Espresso, NYC
Bookshelves by Eric Guiomar. via Apartment Therapy.
I’m a big fan of books that have hidden compartments (like these and these), so I was excited to find the above set of book bookends online yesterday at Amazon. The bookends not only look like books, but also have drawers to hide stuff. Love it. I also hear from my mom that Barnes & Noble is carrying bookends that look like books. I went online to find them but apparently they are only carried in some of the brick-and-mortar locations.
I love the idea of book-themed wallpaper. I’ve seen a few great examples before of bookshelf wallpaper before (see here and here), but this new Stacked Paperback Wallpaper by Tracey Kendall at Anthropologie.com might be my favorite. The hand-screen printed paper is only available on anthropologie.com and unfortunately can’t be shipped internationally.
Don’t you just love these book boxes? Disguised as a stack of vintage French books, each colored stack of two or three books is actually a small box with canvas hinges, perfect for jewelry, trinkets, or anything you want to hide. Reminds me of Claudia’s trick box for hiding candy in the Babysitter’s Club books. You can order them online at Wisteria. Another book box I like is here.
