Hardback books already look great stacked on a shelf, but the miniature Eiffel Towers really add a nice physical element in this photo by Houzz member Sandy. And while this certainly works for the bookshelf or library, mini replicas of iconic architecture would also look great on a desk or in an office.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Long, Cold Winter Days—Bring 'em On!
Wintertime is a great time to start planning for a spring vacation. Pick a destination, book your flights now for the best fares and then spend your winter evenings plotting the itinerary and researching all the sites you plan to see.
This is the aforementioned inspirational photograph. Hardback books already look great stacked on a shelf, but the miniature Eiffel Towers really add a nice physical element. And while this certainly works for the bookshelf or library, mini replicas of iconic architecture would also look great on a desk or in an office.
I love to collect iconic structures when I travel. This picture shows how having the Eiffel tower at different scales could work on a book shelf. Note the tower-like design on the spine of one of the books.
Becky Harris added this to I Spy: Eiffel Towers Around the House
I love to pick up little models of the Eiffel tower whenever I'm in Paris (don't go thinking I'm all fancy, this happens maybe once a decade). They're cheap, they make fun gifts and look great on a desktop, mixed in with books on a shelf, or on a nightstand.
