See how interior designers get clever with books galore in various rooms at the Junior League of Detroit Grosse Pointe Shores' home tour, which opens today.
Books seem to be everywhere. Not only are they in homes and on bookshelves, but paperbacks and hardcovers aplenty are also adorning window displays at apparel shops and boutiques and in fashion designer and home-furnishings ad campaigns. There's even book-page wallpaper. Books are wearable, too. Kate Spade, in fact, introduced clutches that replicate classic tomes, from Romeo and Juliet to Emma to The Importance of Being Earnest. Is this our way of holding on to physical books in our Nook-ish, Kindle-ized world of “E?” Perhaps, and that may be why many of the designers at the Junior League of Detroit's (JLD) 2012 Show House used books in a variety of displays. They cherish books not only for design inspiration but also as intriguing …

The event is a major fundraiser the Junior League organizes every two years and the funds go to a Detroit area charity or non-profit organization.

Essentially a wide variety of contractors will work on the home between now and the first showing, which is May 5--requiring the Shores agreement for permits to do projects in and around the house. In November, the council had received some concerns from neighbors, so the representatives were told to return after quelling such concerns…
