from Renee Claire
Bookshelves make a home... they bring warmth, wisdom, love, and colour into the room. With bookshelves comes openness, connection and community. We don't have enough bookshelves in our home - so I've been scouring for idea's. Here's just some that I'm excited about.

 What can I say, some of these examples just make you want to read, some make me want to write, and some just make me want to sit. I think that's what I'm looking for at home, and haven't quite got.

There are some hurdles to get over when it comes to choosing bookshelves - like
  • size of the house and rooms
  • style of the house
  • built in or fee standing
  • white or light coloured, timber, or dark colours
  • do i have to redecorate the whole room
  • can i afford it?
I found an interesting article highlighting 33 of the best bookshelf designs, but I still come back to thinking it needs to be right for your house, your use, and you lifestyle. What are some of the other things I should be thinking about? and what makes a bookshelf work for you? I'd love to hear your thoughts..
