Slightly Obsessed

I am obsessed with white bookcases....maybe I should say I am obsessed with bookcases in general, but white built-in bookcases in particular.  I grew up in a house that had floor-to-ceiling white bookcases on one wall in our living room & I loved them.  Pretty sure that is where the obsession started.  In the house that I live in now, we do not have white built-in bookcases and for now, we lack the wall space to build them. But I will have them in a house one day, oh yes, I will.

Here are a few that I have found via pinterest..............on a board that I have labeled "Slightly Obsessed".... for obvious reasons :)

This is my favorite one.  I love the disheveled books and the lived-in look of things here.  I, too would want to curl up in that chair and read a good book. I think that this little space needs a soft shag rug to put under the chair, just to make it just a bit more comfy....

I love this one too.  Different from the above photo, as everything in this photo is picture ready.  I love the mix of books and different objects.  I have always loved books that are arranged both vertically and horizontally.  Digging the black painted wall, too.  I also like how the bookcases continue along the top over the window and reading area.

 This one is also an inspiration for my dream studio...only the shelves will house not only books, but tons (and tons) of beautiful fabrics.

Last one.... I like this one because I have children. Children who either like to pull everything off of the shelves and throw it on the floor (the 1 year old boy) or borrow something and forget to put it back (the 8 year old girl). How nice to be able to shut the glass doors!!  I like the little touches of color too.
