Design Shuffle Guest Post: Stylish Bookcases


Hi, I’m Joanna, a writer for Design Shuffle, an online portal featuring the beautiful work of interior designers from around the world. My daily work consists of gathering the most gorgeous spaces on the web and sharing them with readers of blogs such as Classic Chic Home.

There is something about bookcases filled with vast collections of books and found objects that we just love. It gives the appearance of a well-read life. We especially covet floor to ceiling bookshelves filled with colorful hues.

Take a look at some of our favorites and get inspired with some decorating ideas of your own. Thanks for letting me share!

A pristine white palette such as this looks lovely with pops of color in a classic bookcase.

A modern setting with a touch of glamour hosts a bookcase full of favorite reads. Accessories, strategically placed, break up the linear look of the books and bookcase.

This living room/library is a unique space with its unusually placed bookcases. The books carry the room's soft tones onto the bookshelves. This room certainly inspires many interior design ideas.

Floor to ceiling bookcases offer plenty of space to showcase a vast collection of books. A ladder gives access to books placed high on the bookcase.

Another floor to ceiling bookcase adds interest to a home library. The oversized artwork on the opposing wall balances the heaviness of the bookcase.

Looking for large space living room design ideas? Here's one just for you. A curtained bookcase gives this classic space an alternate look should the occasion arise. The vibrant green offers the soft palette a pop of color.

A bookcase with built-in space for a desk does double duty in this library/sitting area. The bookcase is unusual in that it houses found objects and magazines in matching white cases in lieu of a collection of books.

A doorway is framed by built-in bookcases from floor to ceiling. This bookcase configuration uses every inch of available space.
