Book Trees

Do you love books?  How do you organize them at home?

AJ and I each have a vast collection of books that we brought into our apartment.   Here are just some of mine (sorry for the bad photo, I took this using my fone):

Since we have a modest-sized apartment for me, we decided to store most of the books for now, but left some for display.    We wanted our start-up home to reflect our personalities – our love for books, to be exact.    Here are some that you will find:

Books under our console table.   I’m thinking of changing the last 2 with books in red cover so they’ll look consistent and more organized.

The books at our side table have blue and orange color schemes.

There are still a number of really nice books that we want to display but there simply isn’t enough space.

Then I saw these book tree shelves that not only looks pretty but are very unique as well.   Who can’t love these trees that grow books?

My favorite is the one designed by Shawn Soh – it’s minimalist and cute at the same time.  I like the way the branches are carved to hold the books and the grass green color – a color of balance – would be perfect for our beige and predominantly brown living room.

      Yea, I couldn’t agree more =)

      I like the Wisdom Tree design too, but methinks it’ll look great in big spaces only. What do you think?
