Beautiful Books

I have grown extremely fond of large bookcases filled with beautiful bound books
and I just love the way people are showcasing them today for everyone to see...

I would love to walk into my living room and be taken
aback by a sea of wonderfully worded pages...

Oh how I would love to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon
cuddled up on that couch with a great book :)

I love how those crates were used to make a bookcase!
Definitely putting that idea to use one day!

I love how the crisp white makes the books just pop!
(And I'm loving that rug too!)

What do you think?
Would you showcase your book collection?
Or hide it?

  1. I am in love with book cases and shelves and libraries in peoples houses. I have saved every book I love and some I haven't just so one day I can have a room like one of these!

  2. What a dream! I love all of these bookcases!

  3. I love your post! It's my first time visiting your blog (from New Friend Fridays at The Girl Creative) and I love it!

  4. I would showcase them for sure because I'm a bookaholic! I'm still figuring out my storage in my teeny house...


  5. A room isn't cozy for me without a bookcase! All the samples you've shared are gorgeous. I love the crate idea and keep an eye out for these by the roadside so I can construct a crate bookshelf. They want waaaaay to much for crates at the craft store to consider buying the materials.

  6. absolutely love lots of accessible books in my house. i dream of built-in shelving like that first image. gorgeous!

  7. I am such a bookworm and one of my dreams is to eventually have a full library, complete with wall-to-wall bookcases and a sliding ladder ;) I'm a new follower from Boost My Blog. Looking forward to reading your blog!
