Literary scholars, philosophers and history buffs may take
pride in the libraries of their homes and their vast collection of
timeless, classic novels and essays. Titles such as Dostoyevsky's Crime
and Punishment, Plato's Republic, Utopia by Thomas More and Pride and
Prejudice by Jane Austen fill the shelves of the bookcases, waiting to
be read and re-read by residents of the home and neighbors in search of a
good book to borrow.
While the shelves may be stocked with intelligent words of wisdom,
the walls of the study could appear lackluster in comparison. A special
gift to the inquisitive reader who spends hours holed up in the library
can be to decorate the walls with removable wallpaper designed with quotations from her favorite authors and philosophers.
An aspiring writer can find inspiration not only on the pages of her
books but along the walls of her home, reading the wise words of Emily
Dickinson or even a special anecdote from Dr. Seuss. Phrases from
stories that stuck with her from her childhood can revisit her with new
meaning at an older age.
Homeowners can offset the text on the wall graphics with solid-colored furniture and accessories to create a chic room with boldly-stated wall decor.
