Where did you find the white books? Love this look!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to Living with Books
Dressed in the just the right attire, they can feel a bit mysterious while adding a lot of style to a space.
Kerrie L. Kelly added this to Get the Look: Instant Collection
If you have several collected books that either don't have dust jackets or are mismatched in subject, consider covering your book collection with a single color, or white.
Lisa Frederick added this to 12 Ways With a Bedroom Fireplace
This limestone surround feels unfussy, yet makes a statement. It also doesn't overwhelm the monochromatic palette or the clean, uniform styling of the shelves (I'm loving that white-paper-covered book technique).
Julia Pockett added this to Victorian Bedrooms for Today's Homes
Fixtures and fittings in a Victorian bedroom would have been much the same as in the rest of the house, including architectural moldings and a fireplace, of course. Many houses have had fireplaces taken out or blocked off, but the recesses make for great storage, and the mantel is ideal for a mirror. While open fires can be messy in a bedroom, consider a gas alternative for a convenient and clean flame. Pure indulgence and, in true Victorian style, the perfect spot for an armchair.

Interesting solution to a busy bookshelf: make white slipcovers for ALL the books! I don't think we could do this. (How would you find the book you wanted?) But I like the serenity of this all white room.
