Bookshelf Roundup

I’ve always been drawn to rooms with bookshelves as a predominant feature. I always say you can tell a lot about homeowners from their bookshelves – their tastes, interests, personality….. that’s what makes them so interesting (i.e., brings out my nosy side).

Here are some great ones…..


A room with walls and built-ins painted the same color is something I never, ever tire of:

Add furniture in the same color and I’m done. This is definitely going to happen in my next house…..

  1. The last 3 photos made my heart leap out of my chest; and to think I talked my husband out of custom book shelves…..

    Fabulous examples Ally!

    Pinned a couple of those babies – especially that green with animal print – divine!

    1. Oh no. Thanks for the heads up. Is it just this post or all of them?

  5. Some serious “oooh” moments here. And I am crazy for the painting in the Ahern design!

    Phew, images now visible to me – hate the idea of missing out! Thanks for checking, Ally.

  7. I feel the same about bookshelves.

    One day I will have some custom shelves built. Hopefully, in my next apartment.

    1. Oops, meant to say, “the same way”

  8. I agree I like a bookshelf – but now when I move!
