No luxury home décor is complete without statement book ends that reflect your style. These home accents are functional, for sure. They keep your books stored neatly and ensure they stay standing upright. This helps to protect your precious titles, so they don’t fall and get damaged spines. But, function aside, they come in so many varieties – from traditional to industrial to whimsical and more – they really can liven up a bookcase or shelf in any home. What’s more, they’re collectible items, so you could make a hobby out of gathering different types for different rooms of the house.
In a classic library or living room, traditional book ends that convey a scholarly spirit are fitting. For example, get a pair that look like ancient Greek busts, for a playful nod to the philosophers of ancient times. Going for something fun to match your tropical theme and exotic furniture? A quirky animal shape will do best. Then there are the many metallic types − gold, bronze, brass, silver, and so on. These work well in a stylish space, or an old-world library.
Book ends work in the bedroom, too. Place them on either side of your current reads or TBR (To Be Read) pile, whether on your dresser, bookshelf, or nightstand. In an elegant room of white, silver or pink, consider a transparent, crystal set to add to the sophisticated aesthetic. In a bedroom with bold accent colours, choose items in the same hues, for vivid pops of colour that draw your eye around the room. Match your pillow covers and duvet covers, too.
