Ladder, Bookcase, Built Ins, Window, Living Room, Ceiling Bookshelves, Book Shelves, Study Room
Ahh, I've been imagining these built in bookcases in my head in my perfect living room forever now! Add in a window seat and we're golden.
Library - built-in corner bookshelves, a desk and a couch. I'd try desk in front of window.
book shelves with ladder surrounding windows for reading room, aka living room.
Love the built in book shelves around the window in this home library office

love the juxtaposition of traditional dining table and modern eero saarinen chair #tulipchair #library #books #diningroom #shelving #vintage
Great dining room/library. Often a dining room is wasted space much of the time. Why not add bookcases and make it a library as well? Interesting mix of modern tulip chairs with a heavy antique oak table. The shell chandelier is a little quirky too. Fun space.
Minnie Mortimer's dining room. I love the table/tulip chairs/chandelier but would be hesitant to have my books near smelly food. Love the dark bookcases though
LOVE LOVE LOVE the wooden table with white & pink tulip chair and the dining room/ library combo!
Green dining room, bookshelves & Saarinen Tulip chairs...but I would want a pedestal table.
Bookshelves in dining room. Charcoal. White. Brown. Hot Pink. Wood. Tulip Chair. Peonies.

Hi, everyone, I’m Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, your one stop shop for interior design ideas online. I am so happy to be guest blogging for Primed4Design this week. When they asked me to do the Design Tip of the Week about bookshelves with style I immediately looked at my own jumbled bookshelves and realized they need a style overhaul. So here are the bookshelves with loads of style I pulled to inspire my own bookshelf do-over. Hope you find them inspiring as well. Enjoy! Lonny Mag via Stylish bookshelves are filled with more than just books. Filling shelves with books, objects and collections makes each shelf a unique vignette. Happy Mundane via Shelving books in blocks of color is a popular styling trick for bookshelves. Love the yellow bookshelves that add a pop of color all on their own. Flickr via Painted or papered back of the shelves adds an unexpected splash of color or pattern to bookshelves. This is an easy DIY project for new or existing bookshelves that makes them feel custom. Lonny Mag via Lighting on bookshelves can make even standard built-ins or freestanding shelves feel more stylish. Turning some books so the cover faces out or adding art to the shelves adds visual interest. The Glamourai via Arranging books in blocks and stacks can add style to bookshelves. Think about blocks of color or stripes as you mix up books and accessories. We think a dual purpose dining room/library is one of the most functional dining room design ideas we've seen in a while. Chic Tip via Dark shelves add drama and draw the eye to the objects on them. Painting built-ins black or another rich color would change the look and feel of the shelves, and room, completely. Lonny Mag via Find unique and stylish shelves for books and objects that become a focal point in a room. Look for vintage and antique bookshelves at flea markets, antique shops and online. Architectural Digest via A glass front bookcase makes for stylish storage for books and objects. This stylish example is from the new furniture collection from Dwell Studio. Think I'm going to add this one to my interior design wish list. Susi is a seasoned writer for Design Shuffle which is a popular resource for design ideas online.

i'd have a home library like this, even knowing that I'd never be able to read all the books. books = love

Omg my dream home library. I'm such a book nerd!
Beauty and the beast!!! favorite-places-spaces
my dream house: largeee bookshelves
My dream home must only have one room: I would LOVE a home library. Do you remember that scene in Beauty and the Beast when Beast gave his Library to Belle? I was in a swoon over that hairy creature. If you give me a library, you can be as hirsute as you like - just make sure it's you thats taking care of vacuuming. The dream of my own library (complete with big comfortable chairs and blankets) is a long ways off. But I do have books all over our current place. I love reading them, and I love buying them. We live pretty close to Kramerbooks & Afterwards, a local bookstore and D.C. staple, and I contribute a large amount to their monthly revenue. However, I've decided that its finally time for me to get a library card. It will allow me to grab as many books as I can carry home, and it will save me lots of money. I'll still buy books by authors that I truly love, or that have a special meaning for me, but I just can't afford to keep buying every crime thriller I want to read (that's a lot of them). P.S. I'd also love it if my dream library could have one of those tall ladders you can slide around on. Definitely going to need one of those.

"Ideas for small spaces: Custom bookshelves + dark walls: 'Iron Mountain' by Benjamin Moore by xJavierx, via Flickr" Love the corner bookcase next to the work space.
One of my favorite small space solutions that the owner created was the corner bookshelves. Often taking up space, this creative use of book storage is visually appealing and super functional. Well done!

using a bookshelf to create office space in the living room... great idea
Love everything. Home office work space area
Need to make the most of your small apartment, room, cottage or other space? Try these ideas... 1) Use color. Accenting a sofa, the windows, and art on the wall, etc... will draw the eye towards color and can visually enlarge a space. White is NOT the only way to make spaces seem larger. Pattern too, draws the eye towards it so don't be afraid of large scale on wall coverings, window treatments and furniture. Group art and photos together to make a visual statement, rather than spreading small pieces around a space. 2) Make things function in more than one way. Need a table and a shelf and a room divider? Purchase or make a piece that can do all of those things. An open backed piece with interior shelves, at 30" high, can resolve all three issues. Be creative. Re-purpose furnishings. Need art? Hang hard-to-store necklaces or jewelry from pins on fabric boards and get storage and custom artwork. 3) Raise things up. Can you create a platform for a bed and use the space underneath as a desk or storage area? You don't need to make things 'standing height' if the ergonomics work otherwise while using the space. Increasing the scale of furniture used in small spaces is OK too. Larger scale pieces, used well, do give the impression that a room is larger. 4) Lighten up. Literally. Carefully selected layered lighting along with mirrors, can completely change the apparent space. Be careful with what the mirror reflects! Dress windows lightly but don't sacrifice privacy. Remove interior doors when possible to create a floor-through impression. Use glass to divide spaces rather than knocking down all walls. 5) De-clutter. The more things that are out-of-sight or organized, the more open a space seems. Use decorative boxes for paperwork and sorting, baskets for storage, closed storage units versus open-shelves, and even hide your desk and craft area inside a gorgeous cabinet. When accessorizing, while I subscribe to the "less is more" theory, you can use and organize small collectibles and the end-result is something eye-catching.

Creating well styled and interesting vignettes is certainly an art. It can be especially tricky to make bookshelves look nice. Rows and rows of books lined up one beside the other can be rather boring. It's nice to mix things up a little. I found some great inspiration over at Lonny. After looking over their collection of styled bookshelves, I've come up with a few tips for great bookshelf styling. 1. Trays, baskets and boxes (and even a vintage suitcase!) are your best friends. 2. Stack some of your books or magazines. 3. Top stacks of books with pretty or quirky objects. 4. Use heavy objects as book ends. 5. Lean art or framed photographs beside or in front of books. 6. Stand large coffee table books upright to display the book cover (third picture, bottom shelf). 7. Mix, mix, mix! I hope that gives you some fresh ideas. Styling can be so much fun especially if you have some great inspiration to get you started! -Sarah all images via Lonny

Celestial Ceiling --- Tired of staring at the same blah white ceiling? Paint a ceiling to create depth and contrast in a room. For a subtle change, chooose a light shade of pale blue to float overhead. Your room will feel instantly airy and light, as though that were blue sky above. Bedroom I love how this is just a bit warm than a stark grey and white room, even though I do love those colors. Amazing mirror great studio apartment
