Books A La Mode

Show me a vignette with a stack of books and an object on top, and chances are I'll love it.  According to reactions on Instagram, I think many of you feel the same.  It's my favorite way to accessorize. Placing interesting home decor objects (or even jewelry) on beautiful books not only makes for pretty pictures, but showcases both the book and the item so nicely.  It's like giving your prized possessions their own little stage.
