    how to arrange bookshelves

    There is definitely an art to arranging books on a shelf. I came across a great tutorial by Elizabeth Mayhew of House Beautiful on how to design a bookshelf so that it is more than just a bunch of books all lined up.

    I like this arrangement, with the pops of yellow and orange.

    Windows, space, and arrangement of furniture

    If you’re not afraid of color and have an artistic side, this look is perfect for you! Arrange your books between an assortment of objects you love like small sculptures, colorful picture frames, bud vases, and even air plants. Don’t be afraid to arrange your books in different formations, too. We love how some of the books in this shelf are set vertical and others are piled in small stacks.

    Built-in bookshelves . . . Hollow interior walls are wasted space.

    ANY shelf turned on it's SIDE.... add long foam cover pad. ( or use one that fits from the patio ) add pillows and you have a lovely .... WINDOW SEAT . Colours and Choices of Pillows are yours. I would love to do this all in a Shabby Chic design.... Cool

    My oak bookcases are now white... they are similar to these and are eight feet long. I like these and like the pictures above the books. How about the desk in front of the bookcases?
