rainbow bookshelves

I feel so bad about not being here this week until today! So here are a few of our bookshelves. That's some big excitement, mais oui? This is the pink shelf. It's sort of pink. More blush. Dusty rose?

And here we have the green shelf. Is this really how I'm doing this post? Explaining the color that you can clearly see with your own eyes? Apparently so.

In case you missed it, we just passed yellow and red. I have a blue shelf but it's a bit wee. Not many blues on it for some reason.

The other day I decided I'd had enough of the color blocking, so I rearranged everything into a random assortment. And it looked so hodgepodge, I couldn't stand it, so I put everything back into the color blocking. And now you know how I spend my free time. Toodles and cheerio!

  3. Haha! I alphabetize by subject. Between working at a bookstore and my teenage days volunteering in my high school library, it's really hard to change. I love your shelves, though! Pretty!

    1. My dad has an alphabet AND a numbering system, ha ha ha! I like your idea of alphabet by subject! I'm constantly wandering around looking for a certain book because NOTHING is organized into any coherency, except for my vintage children's books, which have a bookcase all of their own :)

  4. You crack me up. You're going to tell us what color you're painting the bedroom, right?

    1. HECK YES! It's going to be some kind of blue. Just can't decide whether to go really dark and slate-y or a lighter. I like the colors on these first 4 pages: http://www.lonny.com/Paint+Ideas+Every+Anglophile+Needs+to+Try+Now/articles/MNl_F2k2DmX/Refined+Remix

  5. I like this! My books are always ordered by size... I just like that particular kind of order I guess. I was at a friend's house for the first time recently and was wowed by her home library. Every wall in her living room was covered in books!

    1. oh man alive, I would love a living room like that! I see all these rooms on Pinterest, with floor to ceiling bookcases. at some point, I'm actually going to change out the leaning bookcases I have in my front hallway (that are housing the books you see here!) for some that are bigger and taller, because the bookcase is leaning against a very tall wall that can take more height and width. We're maxed out, in every bookcase in the house! #bookproblems
