What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Paint it Black
For a bit of a reversal, why not white walls and black built-ins?
Margaret Everton added this to Beautiful Modern Home Libraries
You can't go wrong with black and white. These strong silhouettes stand out against this simple and classic color choice. More: Create Page-Turning Design With Books
Natalie Myers added this to 12 Ways to Rethink the Ladder
Here's a very sleek black-on-black ladder and bookshelves. The black furniture with white walls and floor complete this urban minimalist look. Quite racy.
Beth Dotolo, ASID, RID, NCIDQ added this to Underfoot: Your Guide to Hide
Natural color: Solid. Solid hides can come in an array of colors from black to white to brown. Solid cowhide rugs are perfect when you simply want to incorporate some shape and texture.
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
This simple wall of books with rolling ladder works well with the minimal architecture of the interior. Note how the empty shelf space seems to trickle down from top right to bottom left, indicating that even room for future books can be part of an interim design.
Samantha Schoech added this to Get a Knack for Black
I am a huge fan of painting the backs of bookcases. Here they've gone whole hog, and it looks great in this big, white room. Don't you think it makes all those books look very important and serious?
Jessica Prince-Montague added this to 20 of The Most Novel Reading Spots
8. Statement shelving acts as a great backdrop when constructed from floor to ceiling. Fill it with books about art, photography and design that you can flick through for inspiration.

built in book shelf -- like the idea of having it up a step to make work/home separate even though it's all in the same area
