Small Ideas, Big Changes: A Home Decor Lesson Inspired By Diane von Furstenberg
Every so often, as a homeowner, you may find yourself in need of a drastic change. Whether it be that you are bored with a certain room or just need to spice things up, transforming the interior of your home doesn't have to put a dent in your bank account. Sometimes the smallest accessory or simplest tweak in the arrangement of furniture can make a big difference in the overall feel and look of a room.
Even famous fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg has her own style when it comes to home decor. For her, a small idea such as adding books to a room can make a big change. Rearranging books by size or color is an easy way to create a focal point in a room. In addition, stacking books strategically on different pieces of furniture, such as end tables, subtly complement the entirety of the room.
“I must have books everywhere. They’re the soul of a room—they reveal the taste, the interests, and the secrets of whoever lives there." —Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg via Elle Decor
One of our curators, Look Linger Love, inspired us with what she called a "color coded book vibe," which can be seen in the image above. This look is easy and won't cost you a cent. By simply color coding the arrangement of the books on her book shelf, she was able to completely recreate the appearance of rooms in her home.
