Bookshelf



I sort of drooled when I saw this picture. I love floor to ceiling bookshelves! My mom always gives me a hard time about keeping all these old books I collect from bazaars and flea markets, but I love them all so much I can never get rid of them. How do you feel about books?

I still think that the whole reason to buy a home, especially in an overpriced market like the one we live in, is to customize built-in bookshelves/bookcases.

I've always said that when I have my own place I will have an entire wall devoted to a giant built-in bookshelf. I'd love to have an entire room devoted to a library, entirely in built-ins, but I doubt I'll ever make enough money to set aside an entire room for one purpose... it's all about multi-tasking these days.

You are my fave... said...

Floor to ceiling bookshelves with a little sliding ladder is a must for my dream home. My husband has gotten into the habit of stocking up with them from the thrift store.

Lovely blog.

Books are the best things ever and my dream is to one day have a giant library. Imagine a whole ROOM of floor to ceiling books. It will be the best thing in all eternity.

love books! don't give up the collection, just get better shelving, it's worth the investment. there are, of course, high end and affordable solutions.

the shelving in this photo is not that expensive and it's a great look. looks like the matched the shelves with 2 glass ikea desks and old-school (literally) school chairs. not sure how they keep their space so clean and tidy with 2 young children though....
