This week’s topic on The Book Chat is bookshelves. This was a pretty easy topic, since I regularly drool over various bookshelves on Pinterest.
Some of my favorite shelves are the color coded ones. I hope to one day have this much variety, so I can work on color coding. I think it adds a nice tone to the room and gives reading a fun, appealing vibe.
I may not ever make it to the status above, but I also love this idea. It’s color coding on a smaller level, with other objects thrown in the mix.
I love these classics color coded:
The other half of my time on Pinterest is spent ogling bookshelf nooks. I am always in search of the perfect reading space. My mom helped me put together a very charming reading corner, and as the weather warms up, I will take to my outdoor hammock, but I still one day hope to incorporate a nook with shelves built in, or some sort of loft. This one seems pretty realistic by maybe just installing two bookshelves in front of a window:
Another one that is more on the realistic side to put together:
Now I want to leave reality for a minute, and show you what some of my dreams are made of: I could stay in this bath for hours:
Loft + reading space:
Creative space saver:
A big appeal of the book nook/reading space is having my OWN place set aside, when I am here, with my books, I am off limits! However, if there is more than 1 reader in the family, as there is in ours’, this would perfect:
This reading spaces would definitely be my ideal happy place, I just love the colors and decor:
What are your favorite types of book shelves?
I love the bath bookshelves! How convenient! I might be a little worried about the steam rising and ruining them though lol
True! I didn’t think about that.
Love all of these! I have always wanted a book nook too.
Thanks for linking up 🙂
I really enjoyed this topic, great pick!
I WANT A BOOK NOOK LIKE THE ONES YOU POSTED! Mine isn’t nearly that interesting yet… I’ll work on it 😉
Mine has evolved over time but I am always in search of that ideal reading spot.
I had 2 of the same pictures! The colorful bookshelf and the under the stairs looking nook. I found that colorful bookshelf picture a couple years ago and have wished it was mine ever since! I started looking for colorful hardback books at Goodwill since they’re so cheap there, but I don’t think I’ll ever have a bookshelf room like that unless I win the lottery.
That’s a good idea! Thanks, I am going to do the same.
I got all giddy with your music picks. I love that you chose “older” songs and I might me the only one who never got to read The Catcher in the Rye! Gulp.
Truth is whenever I get myself too, I am having this post on hand!
The nooks are lovely too – I found this one on Pinterest and I guess you might enjoy it – take a look: http://pinterest.com/pin/243968504786672488/
I mean give me this place and my own in-home-Starbucks and I am happy as a clam :))
