I love books.
Its a love my kids now share....even in this digital age, there is nothing quite like turning the pages of a book...especially if its an old one.
I found this image on Whimsy and Wonder. There is only one staircase in the house, and with toddlers still learning to navigate it, the soft carpet is probably a better idea for now. BUT this is definately being added to my Pinterest boards...its just so cool.
What sort of neat decorating tricks have you used in your home? In what ways have you customized your space to feel like "home" to you?
