The built-in bookcase is up! It was a marathon measuring, sawing, building, caulking, sanding, painting week... but they are up & we are pretty darn pleased with the results. I have been playing with some styling on a few of the middle shelves while we were adding the final trim pieces to the top & bottom the past few days. I have little to no patience when it comes to filling empty spaces. What I am now trying to decide on is whether I want a packed library look, a color coded or curated collection feel in our dining room. Here are a few of my favorite bookcases that display each of the categories.
L I B R A R Y L O O K :
Shelves that are mostly filled with books with an accessory, frame or bookend added occasionally, if at all.

C O L O R C O D E D :
All items are displayed & organized via color.
C U R A T E D C O L L E C T I O N :
A well styled collection of all accessories, books, frames, etc.
Now that I am even more confused, if you need me I will be playing with our shelves... Not only do we have the shelves to style, I may or may not have bought a vintage fireplace surround that I am styling as well :) I shared a sneak peek this weekend on Facebook & Twitter.
Which look do you love?
