Clean-lined, contemporary design combined with wonderful antique books
Treat your bookcase like an art gallery by thinking of books as decorative objects with color, texture, and form. Arrange them by size, subject matter, or even the colors of their covers -- some side by side, others in a stack. Integrate a variety of objects — sea forms, sculpture, vases, framed art—to add interesting textures and finishes. Be careful though; overstuffed shelves can look untidy. Edit objects carefully.

Instead of a home library, I plan to have floor to ceiling bookshelves on both sides of a wide hallway, to save space.

Reminds me of why Belle was my favorite Disney princess. Because she had that awesome library with a rolling ladder! You need a ladder for this one. And I love that all the cubbies are different sizes.

Maybe take book covers and nail/glue them over a wooden bookcase? Just a thought.
