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.

Shoe storage

I found this photo and thought this was a great idea for anyone who has a TON of shoes and is looking for a place to store them. So if you have space at the top of a staircase for some cubbyholes to be built into the wall or a set of tall bookcases to be placed there, it’s the perfect spot for that ever-growing shoe collection.

Many people collect books and often use standard Billy bookcases to store them. While it may be economical, it is not a very unique way to display them. I can admit that because guess where my books are housed? Here are some interesting ways to display them that don’t necessarily involve our good friend Billy.
