Gilded Bookends | Claire Zinnecker for Camille Styles

One of my favorite parts of personalizing my home is dressing my shelves with knick knacks and beautiful books. A carefully curated shelf can be a work of art in itself, telling stories of travels, interests and aspirations. And what better way to finish off a bookshelf than with substantial bookends? As I began to hunt around for my favorites, I realized that none of them quite captured what I was looking for, so I’ve collected some of the best bookends I’ve found, and need you to help me reach a final decision. Which of these 4  interesting sets of bookends would you like to see me DIY? What do you like about them, and what, if anything, would you change? Pitch in your thoughts and ideas, and stay tuned for the reveal in two weeks!

    I love the gold brick with the tiny clock in front. What a great collection. We recently looked at vintage book-ends, but this is a great modern take.
