Would You Judge My Books???

So when I was looking around for books by the foot (for a project at work), I spotted these pictures & thought that is a fantastic idea. I am obsessed with color & color coordinating things. I’ve debated on whether I should color code my closet but I have so many clothes I might just drown in clothes if I attempt that!

It makes me chuckle a little when I showed my boyfriend, James, pictures of the idea and he just couldn’t bare to have his books mixed up like that. He wanted it by category, not by color. Our ways of sorting books are a definite way of how we are…I am more of the artistic type & him, well, he is the philosopher (as he likes to put it).
However, I just can’t resist color coordinating my books one day, when I have enough books. Hopefully, I will win him over by then!
I found this picture awhile ago it was my first inspiration

Picture from Reiko-This was another photo I was inspired by..I want that chair too!

Having your books displayed by color really can create a whole other piece of artwork in your room. It creates a focal point & in turn draws you in to read a pretty little book.

What is your opinion in this debate? Are you a person who likes your clothes by season or by color? Your books by category, author, or what shade they are?

peace & love,
