Recently I noticed my book collection has really grown over the years. I have stacks on a bookshelf, piles in two closet shelves, and a few favourites by my bedside. I go back to a lot of them over and over again. I love that i've created my own collection of favourites, but it would be so much better to have some nice built-in shelves to display them on. I love the look of ones that fall right into the wall, but also when the shelf pops outs from the wall, like above. Makes it look like your books were meant to be stored there all along, all happy in their library-like setting, no?
