Ode to My Deco: What's on Your Shelf?

Well, I'm still at it...downloading imagery from Domino's My Deco Files, trying to glean any and all inspiration I can from their files until they finally fade away forever. I love my books, and since I am a bit of a book junkie, I have an overabundance of them. I've always wanted some built-in bookcases and dream of that day I have them floor to ceiling filled with all my favorite literary friends. I organize my books by spine color, partially because of my OCD, but also because I truly believe they look cleaner and more organized that way, and also because being a pretty visual person, I remember my books by the color of their spines and can find them much easier when I know where it is I stuck them! Domino's My Deco Files were filled with my dream bookcases and shelving, so in installment twelve (the decorating dozen!) of my Ode to Domino's My Deco Files, I bring you bookcases!

I wonder how many people bought the Expedit as a direct result of Domino? I know I did! This is a great collection!

Oh so pretty. I love to read as well which makes this post even more amazing! I wish I had room in my house for a library. Oh maybe some day.

A bibliophile's dream!

I organize my books by genre. There's no way I'd find anything if I organized them by color! Plus, I prefer seeing different colors living side by side. It gives me a sense that the books have lives of their own without me imposing my decorating whim on them. :-)

there is no rhyme or reason to my book display. i think i have too many nicnacs on cases as well. seeing these images makes me want to reorganize.

Thanks for doing this! I'm new to decorating blogs and I was so sad about the demise of domino! I'm glad these are still going to be around!!
