Foolproof combo: Bookcase + color-coded books. Designers have been arranging books by color as a fun and quirky way to style a bookcase for a few years now, sometimes to the horror of book lovers. Try it, though. You may be surprised

Like the bookshelves and the color coding of the books
books in color order collection around top perimeter of room - otherwise wasted space.
The office is one room in the house that is 100% Shannon. The book collection displayed by color order (I do the same thing!) and the milk glass collection around the perimeter make the room feel relaxed but not messy.
image supports that idea. The collection of vases, candlestick holders, and bowls that line the top shelf here goes nicely with layers of books arranged by color. More is more!

Grouping paperback books by color!!! Brilliant (no pun intended.)

Color blocking can be done with paint, artworks and even books. Color code objects and create a color-blocked
Arranging books by color might not be the most practical method of organization, but it sure is pretty.
I am so stealing this idea. Grouping books by color adds up to a gorgeous, graduated rainbow effect that showcases even the most unassuming of paperbacks in their best light. Genius

the multi colored pouf is actually from West Elm, but I think they have been discontinued since we finished the project
Like how the books are organized by color.
Rainbow ordered books and tuffet chairs.
Create your own artistic feature wall with colour coding. I like to categorise my collection by genre – but ordering it by colour can really provide a feast for the eyes.

What color did you use on the walls and trim?
looks like a soft grey on the walls but it allows such a great palette for the color. Thanks!
The trim and ceiling is Dunn Edwards Cool December (white), the walls are a soft warm grey, I don't remember the exact color.
Books arranged by spine color, not title, or author! Books as art? You'd never find anything!>!>
Color coded books! Love this couch
Although most people get their color fix via their walls, Kropat has kept most of the walls in her main living space neutral. "The wall shouldn't be the focal point — after all, it's just a wall," she says. A colorful accent "should be something more interesting, like artwork

Color-coding is a great way for a shelf display to go from boring to brilliant. Vary the heights of the books within groupings so your eye doesn’t get bored.

favorite is to arrange kids' books is by color. This makes quite a design statement.
Children's books come with the most fantastic covers in the prettiest shades. Why not arrange them according to color to spice up the bookcase a bit?
A mellower take on the primary-colored kids' room. Still vivid
Before her youngest arrived, both kids' rooms and the guest room were redecorated, which allowed experimentation with brighter colors, pattern and wallpaper.
