Books as Colorful Decor

To say that I adore books is a gross understatement. Not only do I love reading them, I also like the way they look.

They can be categorized into sizes or colors or genres, publication date or alphabetically by author’s last name. They can be piled into misshapen stacks, or your very own Hemingway, Fitzgerald and Capote version of Jenga. And if you’re enough of a bibliophile, they can make such things as wallpaper, paint and general decor relatively moot.

With our 1,000+ library of books, and the thought that this number will continue to grow, I like the idea of having a gargantuan library. You know, the one with the globe on the antique wood desk and the horizontally sliding ladder. Perhaps, in the corner, a genuine bear rug. Or not. Oh yes, these are the dreams, these are the wishes. In fact, it would be quite similar to the library as seen in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast:

I’d also like to construct some ceiling bookshelves for all of the, let us say, lighter (in weight, not literary depth) books. I certainly wouldn’t want War and Peace to fall on my head whilst asleep.

Here are some cool bookshelves, found at Dornob.
