New library

The book shelves in our new home library. The shelves are Billy from Ikea. Now I'm just looking for the right armchair and carpet... :)


Hard covers to the left. Paperback to the right. Cookbooks and non fiction in the middle.

    OH I have to do this! I'm a color person too. When I remember something it's always by the color first then the title/size/thickness. This would save me so much time! I'm SOOO bloglifting this idea. Thank you!!! I do hope I have enough colors now to make it a pretty rainbow like yours!! ;)

    Did you have to cut down a unit to get those small shelves in the middle?
