How Do I Love Bookcases? Let Me Count the Ways!
When we built our room addition, I wanted built ins, but my hubby didn’t. Uh-oh, how did that work out? Well, I ended up with my built ins by compromising and getting open back bookcases. They didn’t make the room feel darker by soaking up all the light, you can still see all the hard work I did painting the walls my favorite gray paint color, and they create an amazing focal point in our room.
Bookcases are an easy way to add storage, create a focal point, and add architectural interest to your space. The best thing is, they aren’t just for books anymore!! They aren’t just shelves enclosed on three sides anymore!! I had to share the ones I am currently crushing on and would probably buy, if I had anywhere to put them. Head over and find out how to style a bookcase in this POST.

First up (and my favorite..shhh, don’t let the others know) this hunk of beauty from Anthropologie. I showed it to my hubby and I think he could build one just like it!
This little cutie has simple lines and would add character to any space you put her in.
This industrial style bookcase is on wheels so you could roll him around anywhere you want him.
Leaning bookcases are very trendy right now. The offer great spaces to display all your decor.
I am totally loving this mid-century modern bookcase that even has a drawer for extra storage.
This great bookcase with the double drawers is like the ones I have only mine are lighter colored wood and I changed out the drawer pulls for some great vintage ones I had picked up at Habitat for Humanity (I knew I would use them for something!).
Here is the same style in white, what a clean, crisp look it has!
This bookcase with it’s metal frame adds a touch of industrial style, but could also pass for modern, traditional or farmhouse when decorated with the right decor.
This asymmetrical bookcase might have some people thinking no way…but I think it is totally rad and with the white finish it will lighten up your space.
Cubed bookcases are nothing new, but the bi level look of this one gives you two in one. It would be great for adding storage bins to for all the things you want to keep tucked away from view and it would make a wonderful room divider!
I saw this bookcase and my heart beat a little faster! Minimalist and fun it’s a great piece…and check out the legs, they kind of look like the bottoms of crutches.
Aren’t these bookcases just amazing?!! Totally worth crushing over!! Which one is your favorite? You can tell me in the comments below, I promise not to let the other ones know 😉
