What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Being Minimalist When You Like Stuff
Yes, enjoy your things. Know how to display and organize them.
Margaret Everton added this to Contained Chaos
I get too nervous about mixing the library-worthy order of my own library, but I love the color organization of this collection. The segmentation of this bookshelf helps visually separate the collection into bite-sized sections and allows for more filled shelves without overdoing the look.
Kit Pollard added this to Books in the Kitchen
These books might not be in the kitchen, but I love the way they're organized - great inspiration for putting together a pretty display in the kitchen.
Go playful with color coding. Tip: Keep a cubby or two open for a few cherished pieces. This way they'll get the chance to shine.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Instant Décor: Beautiful Book Covers
Or order several in varied shades for a bright, rainbow feel.
Color blocking can be done with paint, artworks and even books. Color code objects and create a color-blocked library.
Arranging books by color might not be the most practical method of organization, but it sure is pretty.
Lisa Frederick added this to Paperback Books Get a Second Look
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!
