Revisiting architect Piero Castellini Baldissera's red cabinet filled with pattern-bound volumes got me thinking about this (his collection of bound vintage magazines appeared in a past post on storage). If you want a touch of faded floral but aren't ready to recover a chair or do curtains, a summer book-covering project could be just the thing.
Paper Source has book-binding supplies for beginners. Alternatively, if you decide to eschew fabric and go the paper route, Kate's Paperie has a nice soft blue-and-white pattern.
