book decor

"A room without books is 
like a body without a soul."  -Cicero

Whether you stack them, 
line them up or display them prominently, 
books always add drama, character 
and warmth to a room.

They're a great way to add color too!

Books can personalize 
your space at a glance. 

Always display books that have 
a personal meaning to you.

The perfect way to accessorize!

This way, you'll always have 
one within arms reach!

So many options!

And fabulous ways to style them! 

How do you display your books?

It's so easy!

a beachy, industrial style home

Welcome to the world of Shelly Kormeluk.  
Her love of color and quirky transformations 
create a one-of-a-kind vibe that is perfect 
for her and her two boys.  

In her home, she has combined 
a coastal industrial style with 
a cool mountain resort style that 
reflects her Idaho and Utah roots. 

Shelly collected hotel keys from around the world 
and covered a headboard for the guest room. 

She repurposed old skis into a back splash. 

A colorfully salvaged oil drum is 
a base for the sink in the powder room. 

a modern chandelier in the entry 
contrasts beautifully with the natural stone wall

a variety of textures in the stairway

the front entry 

the game room features an American flag
made of salvaged licence plates

a relaxing seating area with fireplace in the backyard 

you can find interesting accents in every room

great use of color in one of the boys' rooms

inside the game room

where a comic book mural comes to life! 

the unique facade

with a fabulous back yard that is perfect for relaxing! 

Great job, Shelly!
This house was featured on the 
Newport Harbor Home and Garden Tour last year. 

I really enjoyed visiting this house in person and am looking forward to the next home tour in May. Let me know what you think of this home!
