This week, we read a short article over at NPR about Bookshelf, a blog-turned-book by Alex Johnson about — you guessed it — the bookshelf in all its glory. It’s no secret that we’re suckers for a little book-related design here at Flavorpill, so we took the occasion of the book’s publication as an excuse to round up thirty gorgeous, innovative, and otherwise amazing bookshelves and bookcases for all your book display needs.
In Direct Compass, the bedroom is considered central to family relationships, and is built overlooking a small zen garden on the house’s south side, as cool temperatures are believed to be beneficial for mental clarity. At Kinugawa and Hughes` residence, the bedroom is separated from the kitchen and dining area by a clearly defined, six-foot-long passageway marking the transition between public and private.
Make the books the focal point.When displayed the right way, books have the ability to convey the personality of the owner. “To highlight your collection, paint the bookshelf a contrasting color, such as duck egg blue or bright coral,” says De Bastiani. “And if you want, shine a light on the books in the literal sense. Install LED spotlights and direct them at the shelves.”
