There are many ways to style a bookshelf. One recent trend is to arrange the books by color. It’s an easy way to bring color into a space.
However, this may drive you crazy if you are like most and like to arrange by subject matter, title or author.
Though I love to organize by subject matter, I do love the visual impact of the color coded arrangement! Let’s look at a few examples.
I love how the room is layered with a sofa in front of the shelves.
And, if you really want uniformity, you can actually create colored book covers, label them and line your shelves with the exact right number of each color. That way, they can still be arranged by author, title or subject matter.
How about vertically?
I love how the books are paired with all the white, making them the star.
In this photo, too.
Admit it, it’s pretty.
Is this something you would do? Or, would it drive you crazy?
