Decorating with Books and Prints is a success!
Well, Wilson Kelsey Design represented itself very well in Boston on Saturday at the Boston International Anitquarian Book and Print Fair. Sally’s presentation on Decorating with Books and Prints was a big success, with about 50 people attending her talk. She had over 175 images which she went through in about 40 minutes. Whew!!! The show producer took a video of her talk, which we are hoping we can get a copy of. I thought it would be fun to share some of the images that drew oh’s and ah’s from the attendees.
Lovely composition by Linda Chase Associates
Beautiful Library from LeFevre Interiors.
The audience LOVED this fire place done by LeFevre Interiors.
Fire place mantels can be such focal points, as in this beautiful example done by Providence Ltd. Design.
I overhead one couple whisper to each other, “I never would have thought of hanging something in front of my book case shelves.” as shown by Giannetti Home.
Sometimes, it was the simplicity that impressed. Image by LeFevre Interiors.
Fantastic if you can’t sleep at night! Image source unknown.
Beautiful built ins. Sally has always wanted a step ladder for her library… Image: “Books Make A Home” by Damian Thompson, Publisher: Tyland Peters & Small Ltd.
After the presentation, we walked down the hall to the show where we met and made several new contacts and friends.
Sally with Maryke Muller of Frederik Muller Rare Books, Holland. Their maps were exquisite!

We arrived back home around dinner time, tired and quite happy with how the day went.
Sally would love to be able to give the talk again. Hint, hint, hint…
Another busy week is upon us. I wonder what adventures it will bring…
