Design Mom’s Bookcase

While this picture does feature my darling niece June, I wanted to point out how amazing my sister, Gabrielle, aka Design Mom is at styling bookshelves. Although she’ll deny it, her house is amazing. (It ALWAYS has been.) This bookshelf isn’t filled with expensive art books, just the regular kind of books people actually have. But her bookshelf looks straight out of a magazine. Gab, can you come out and visit and do this to my bookshelf?

    Beautiful. I never thought of books arranged mostly by color. Soo inspiring!

    And the addition of the precious cherub is way too cute!

    happy day!

    so beautiful, but once I saw the baby I couldn't take my eyes off of her. So sweet. She's the baby in the bookshelf. How nice to sleep surrounded by books.

    I thought the same thing when I first saw this photo! I love how she organized it by color. I can't wait until I have enough books to try something like this.

    I just started organizing my bookshelf by color and I am amazed at how much better my "normal" bookshelf looks already. And the baby?! Beyond adorable!

    sooo cute! I aspire to have an awesome bookshelf. My uncle's partner is an interior designer and her WALLS are all books. I love it.

    I arranged my bookshelf by color last year, and at first, the idea kind of horrified me, because I am a librarian, but I LOVE how it looks, so I kept it that way.

    I so enjoy seeing other people's books. You can learn so much about them. I've debated with my husband over the years about keeping my Riverside Shakespeare – I'm glad to see it sitting in Gabby's shelves too!

    I totally didn't know you and Gabrielle are sisters and I love reading both of you. Well no wonder! So cool. And yes, love her use of color on each shelf.
