I’m loving the look of stacked books on bookshelves. Its more interesting to stack them horizontally and has a little more modern feel since the classical arrangement is to set them on the shelf veritcally.
I love the red and green in this room, it’s in such good proportion and it give the room such a youthful feel. The bust and style of chair along with the paintings on the wall and the oversized urn really give the room some sophistication. So it’s the best of both worlds, fun and sophisticated!

I like the well thought out color and balance in these shelves. The top shelf is monochromatic using only white and shades of orange. And yes, I do love the bust! The next shelf is much more colorful and still balanced. Also the placement of the green books moves your eye around. On the bottom two shelves, I think standing the books up is a really nice touch. Matter of fact, I’ve looked at this picture about a dozen times and never noticed until now that most of those pictures are just books. (My eye was tricked!) Great idea to use as a substitute for art work.

I love how they used surprise elements such as the markers. It makes it so much more intriguing and personal. I’m imagining this bookshelf to belong to an artist or designer. Seeing inside people’s homes is like people watch to me; only it’s a little more intimate. Color coordination in these shelves is fun too!

Now we are getting fancy, a combination of horizontal and stacked.

How do you organize your bookshelves or do you?
