A bookworm’s living space can carry traces of their love for the written word, whether it be stacks of books, well-loved bookshelves, wall decor doubling as literary tributes, or merch that celebrates fandoms.

Now, envision a room where the reading corners and storage spaces go above and beyond when showcasing a love for reading through subtle yet profound and one-of-a-kind decor items. If that sounds like a dream come true, then look no further.

Here are six literature-inspired home items that will bring great joy while brightening up your living spaces.

Bookshelf Board Games

These beautiful vintage-style editions of classic board games are so clever and fun. The best part: they can hide in your bookshelves (or at least blend in — it’s hard to keep your eyes away from these pretty spines) until it’s time for game night.

Library Wallpaper

At one point or another, you may have fantasized about a wall full of books — maybe some have even made it a reality! But with this wallpaper, you can decorate your walls with adorable illustrations of books that will elevate the entire mood of the room. The wallpaper design is so bright that it could cheer up a reader of any age.

Literary Libations Bottle Opener

Planning to wind down with a book or host a book club meeting with some drinks floating around? Well, what’s more on brand than an ampersand-shaped bottle opener. This bottle opener by The Bookish Shop is the perfect addition to your bar cart.

Book Lamp

You may have seen these book lamps floating around the internet before, but they have a lesser-known mini version that’s worth adding to your home. Hiding inside this cute little notebook is a lamp that is perfect for reading during a gloomy winter day. These compact lamps also make for great traveling companions.

“Little Women” Litographs Blanket

Inspired by books ranging from classics to beloved children’s books, Litographs blankets — like this “Little Women” option — are a great way to showcase your love for literature. Calmingly elegant and perfectly cozy, these blankets will be your go to when reading on a rainy night or a chilly day.
