The Life of Polarn Per
Whether antique, brand new or somewhere in between, there are few decorating staples we love to utilize like a great collection of books. While the glossy ones can be glamorous, there is something about the history of an heirloom that adds so much character to a room, not to mention that the outsides of vintage books are generally as interesting as their insides. From the most relaxed room to the most formal, here are a few of our favorite shots.

Bookcases don’t always have to be arranged in perfect lines. Sometimes, we prefer when you can tell someone really uses their shelves.

The Paris Apartment
This whole desk area is like going back in time.



This collection must have been quite the find. We haven’t run across too many sets of white spines, unfortunately!

Antique books don’t always have to match! We love that these look well loved and collected.
