I’ve been seeing more bookshelves surrounding doorways and really like how it can make a small space feel really cozy and intimate. It’s perfect for a room like the library above.
Or, if you’re short on space, extending the shelves to the ceiling and using the area above doorways (which is usually empty) is a great use of space.
I love the feel of this space! It looks like just a pass through area but with clever shelving, transformed into a great place to hang out.

Hi, everyone, how was your weekend? Mine was so much fun beginning with our fantastic party at Huff Harrington Home on Friday night! We had a great turnout and it was so fun to meet FTRB readers and catch up with some old friends. Thank you to everyone who came out, including all of these cute bloggers!
I also did a lot of little things around the house, including moving the low bookshelves (that used to be in my old studio) into my office. I’ve got more trips on the schedule this summer so I’m really trying to tackle that pesky to do list during the time I have at home.
You don’t see as many low shelves compared to full height ones but here are some examples I like.
The thing I like about the lower height is that it provides a whole other surface area to spread out, display and stack things.
I have a set of four so it takes up almost an entire wall like this which I’ll be using mostly for magazines, catalogs, samples and supplies.
And here’s an interesting space that uses both heights:
Pictures of mine to come once I get them presentable!

Bookshelves are running a very close second to art walls these days as far as my obsessions go. I think I’ve said before that my nosey side definitely comes out when I see a bookshelf. I just love seeing what’s on them!
I’ve posted a ton of bookshelves before like this one:
but here are a couple that are new to me:
This house has been published everywhere (and for good reason) and I think the bookshelves are my favorite part:
I favor shelves that have a mix books and objects but are heavy on the books. What about you?
