Books, Birds, and Globes: Guest Edition

Susi, a writer from Design Shuffle is here today guest posting about a few of my favorite things... books, birds, and globes.  I cannot get enough of these 3!  I'm excited about the fabulous images she has scoured the internet to find, they are definitely getting pinned, pronto!


Hi, I’m Susi, a writer at Design Shuffle, a fabulous community for interior designers and other design professionals, home owners and design lovers to share projects, find inspiration and network. I'm so lucky to visit blogs from around the world, including Kelsey Inspired that are sharing great design projects, decorating ideas and inspirations. I love Kelsey's Books, Birds and Globes posts so am excited to share mine. I hope you enjoy these. Thanks for letting me and Design Shuffle visit you this week.

Books and globes both can add color to a shelf, table or desk. Arrange your books in swaths of color or chose books that play off the color of the globes for a big impact.

These books have been selected and organized to coordinate with the globes above. The cohesive palette creates an organized and well designed look for this bookcase. Love that bird in the background.

Globes and suitcases make for a stylish pairing that hints at world travel. Perfect pair for someone who travels a lot or has a lot of places on their bucket list.

Sparrows on the ceiling are so charming for a child's bedroom. And look, globes on the shelf too! Also these could be used as interesting little decorating ideas for living rooms.

A pair of small birds paired with a stack of books creates a charming vignette. The jar of birds' eggs adds color and pattern to this simple grouping. Which came first? The eggs or the birds?

There are some very charming prints on Etsy that have vintage images printed on old book pages, combining two great decorative elements into one. Look for single birds, steampunk birds or flocks of charming birds.

Here is a another charming combination of books and birds as art. Love the simple bird silhouettes against the busy collage of book pages. Great wall art.

This birdhouse made from books is so whimsical and adorable. So are the handmade birds that inhabit it. Love the idea of interior design and architecture for the birds. Would be cute for a home office, kid's room or reading nook.
