keeping things tidy: bookend roundup

Now that I no longer work from a couch all day, my view has changed significantly. Rather than staring at a wall with a TV, I now stare at a wall full of art and design books. As much as I miss my daily movie fix (the best tool for getting through hours of research or roundup building), I love having colorful book spines to look through for inspiration. Today I thought I’d round up pretty ways to organize those inspirational books so that they always stay protected and easy to find. I have a habit of stacking books and coming home to towers that have cascaded all over the table, so these will definitely come in handy for my personal life, as well. Happy book organizing! xo, grace

Bookends are my kryptonite! I am helpless before them. I have way too many already, and then you had to go and do this. I will be broke before the end of the day. Thanks a LOT, Design Sponge! (seriously awesome roundup, guys!)

I was just thinking about bookends today! Found a funky pair of purple bulldog bookends this morning on our site (which I didn’t even know we had!). Love the unique roundup, Grace. The weiner dog one in the first image is my favorite.

Holy cow! I love all the different bookend especially the Westie ones. Imagine my excitement when I found my brass owl bookends featured here. Thank you so much!
