Details: Bookshelf Nirvana

I took the lunch hour today to finish organizing my home office, complete with my first ever color-coded bookshelves. I hadn’t planned on doing this, but it’s always something that I’ve thought is incredibly aesthetically pleasing. When I stopped to think about it, I realized that having the luxury of my own little office tucked away on the 3rd floor of our new/old home means that I am able to fill these shelves with just my design-related books. All of our other books have a different home (definitely no color coding there, I might add). Since all of these titles are in the same genre I decided to give it a whirl and organize solely based on hue. I must say, it’s kind of like design nirvana for me. What do you think? Am I officially off my rocker or would you ever consider color-coding your bookshelves too?


  1. Hi Krista!… no you are not off your rocker… I have done exactly the same… in our new house, I am lucky enough to also have a little study upstairs solely for me!…. I shall do exactly the same and extract all of ‘my’ books from Michael’s already very busy study!! xx

  2. You have completely inspired me to do this with my own books! It just looks so good!
