Carved Marble Bookends

Decorate with the versatile beauty of marble by placing a pair of carved marble bookends at either end of your bookshelf. While marble is a gorgeous stone in its own right, when it has been worked by a master craftsman and carved into a decorative image the beauty is magnified. Marble has many appearances thanks to the diverse range of colors in which it is formed and it lends itself very nicely to being carved and then polished into all kinds of beautiful shapes.

Vintage carved marble bookends make wonderful display items and provide a lavish richness that looks timeless no matter what style the room may be furnished in. Choose dark marble for a more formal appearance that will blend in nicely in an office environment while lighter marble will really pop in a modern family room.

A pair of carved marble bookends provides more decorative interest than a pair of marble bookends that have simply been designed as round or square blocks. Although both look very distinguished the use of marble to create a more imaginative design (and there are many different images available such as horses, owls, dogs, cats, etc) allows you to incorporate the bookends into a wider theme.

Wall Decor Ideas – Collectors Plates

While some people have a natural knack for decorating their homes, others struggle mightily when it comes to making their house look like more than a jumble of assorted items.  Certainly it is important for a home to be functional, but taking the way things look into account is also very important.  Having a well designed decor theme can go a long way to making your house feel more "homey".

Even people who are natually talented at putting together a nice looking room sometimes find themselves struggling when it comes to decorating their walls.  Often they feel trapped into just using the standard framed prints that adorn the walls of almost every other house in the neighborhood.  There are some other options to consider if you are looking for a way to show what your real interests are and break away from the old standards.

One simple thing that you can do is to choose wall art that follows one particular theme that ties in with the room.  Rather than just sticking up the old standard still life images of fruit in a basket, perhaps you might want to consider a jungle or savanna theme that can be used throughout the entire room.  Another idea is to choose a favorite style and running with it.  The art deco style of the late twenties and early thirties is a popular way to accomplish this.

Still another option is to incorporate a collection you already have into the overall design of a room.  Collectors of decorative plates sometimes build a room around a personal favorite.  If you collect Norman Rockwell plates, consider mounting these around a doorway.  Tied together with other Rockwell Americana items, this can give a room a very inviting feel that harkens back to a simpler time.

Whatever you choose to use for your home wall decor, do not be afraid to think outside of the box.  You may decide to change things up from time to time, but try seeing each room in your home as a little extension of what really interests you.  Before you know it, you will find that your home decor has become more interesting to you and your guests!
