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.



A bookshelf, a wardrobe, a table, a wine rack, and a sculpture. One piece of furniture frames and connects the space, reinforcing the meaning, the personality, the purpose. Monoform Living at the Strata by Singapore design firm Produce.


Book storage under stairs

I LOVE this! Book storage under stairs! The scheme makes the most of the split floor levels, as floors in the snug become walls, with flooring lining recessed walls, and steps become shelves extending around the walls, and becoming a bench seat by the existing fireplace on one side, and a desk on the other. The steps have been appropriated as a place for family members to sit, chat, read, write, draw, perform, and play, and the snug has become the centre of the home and of family life.
