Bookshelves Done a Little Different

Book Shelf Love | La La Lovely

It appears I still have books on the brain.  Yesterday, I shared a list of books I’ve read recently, and today I’m dreaming interesting ways to display books, books and more books.

These days it seems bookshelves are to be decorated and accessorized.  And, books are just another accessory to add to the shelf.  While I love accessorized shelves I’ve always been a fan bookshelves filled, top to bottom, with books.  Right now, my shelves are accessorized.  It works great in this room as it’s small and can feel congested, but I’m longing for an entire wall of books somewhere in my house.

A wall dripping with books can materialize in unlikely places, like the hallway or entryway pictured above.  Take a book as you are walking through… why thank you.

How about a massive shelf that is . . .

several stories tall and alongside your staircase?  This has to be one of the coolest bookshelf ideas I’ve ever seen.  It goes in my one day some day house file for sure!

Recently,  I fell in love with the idea of a built-in around a door and covering the entire wall.  Love the way Victoria’s shelves look.

Any shape wall works.  And, if you can’t afford built-ins than why not just hang simple bracket shelves above and on either side of the door?

And, if around the door isn’t your thing, then how about behind the couch?  Books, books, and more books!  I’m thinking an entire wall of books is the next best thing to having your own library room.

Are you loving this look as much as me?
