Books on display

Posted on Tue, 31 Jul 2007 by KiM

I adore this photo. Not only are the books organized by colour but by size too. Love the graphic effect.

Here are some more I really like. My favourite are wall-to-wall bookcases. But there are a couple of smart ideas below for books that maybe aren’t the greatest to look at. Such as the third photo. Place a REALLY nice chair in front of your books and no one will even notice them because they’ll be too busy admiring the chair. Or in the fourth photo – just turn the books around so the spines are facing backwards.

Call me a design philistine but I love books arranged by colour.

I really love the shelving in the last picture. Of course you need a really big long wall to pull this look off…. but its very cool!!!

Suzy says:

These are all great images. Good food for thought. Seems like books and how they are arranged is a popular blogging subject at the moment.


my dream has always been wall to wall, floor to ceiling bookcases, but THAT bottom pic is about to change my dream. 🙂
