Entries in shelving (44)



I cannot wait until I have my third floor library set up instead of having book piles all over the floor. This library corner is giving me heart palpitations. What a gem!!! Via Peti Lau.


Book storage round-up

There are MANY projects I need to tackle in my house. One of them is turning the room on the third floor into a library. Currently all of my books and magazines are in piles on the floor in that room (along with all of our excess furniture) and it is driving me crazy that I don't have them organized and cannot access them easily. Unfortunately this project is not at the top of the to-do list, so in the meantime I thought I would do a round-up of rooms with bookcases, shelving...some really amazing ways books have been stored and put on display, so I can dream of the day when I have my library all set.

How to fake a bay window

This is a fantastic idea - build some bookcases on either side of a window and you end up with storage, a window seat and throw in some mirrors and trim and you have the cutest little reading nook in a 'bay window'. Via Granit.


Halard - Halard noteworthy spaces

Possibly one of the best spaces I have seen in months. I am going to dream about this ALL DAY. (All photos via Halard - Halard)

There is something about those narrow steel rods...that shelving....

That fireplace with that mirror....those beams....

That sink...the floor....

Those black walls....that ragged bed cover...

That bathroom!


A book lover's dream

This is any book lover's dream - tons and tons of book storage that is far from your typical row of Ikea Billy bookcases. If I had this shelving I would spend my days scouring book stores. It is the perfect excuse. By Feldman Architecture
