library love.

bookshelf spectrum, revisited

bringing the outdoors in, in an unexpected way: i had wanted to colour-coordinate my books for a long time, and when i finally did, i was surprised with not only how well it came out, but how it opened up and brightened the dark room. the addition of the blue walls and rug grounds the space, and mimics the sky and ocean just beyond the walls. sitting on the comfortable daybed covered in basic canvas is like lounging on the sand dunes below; or, if i'm feeling particularly capricious (read: ridiculous), like sitting on a cloud amongst the rainbows.

Love it! What a fab idea, I think I'll borrow that one :-)

Wow, that is really cute! I love the fact that they are placed so beautifully, but even more, that you have so many books lined up for reading... Great idea.

this looks great, I'm excited for our new house which we just moved into and drumming up some ideas as well ;)
