bringing the rainbow inside

It's a rainy Sunday out there - and by 'rainy', I mean monsoon - so I'm getting caught up on projects around the house.

Of course, it's always more fun to do the non-essential projects first... So I rearranged my bookshelf by colour. I've posted before about people who have done this - see here and here - and I figured it was time to try it out for myself.

Here's what my bookshelf looked liked before. Quite messy and drab.

And here's what it looks like now. Much prettier, don't you think?

Arranging my books by colour has definitely cheered up my living room. And now whenever I feel like reading something green, I'll know just where to look.

That looks great! I can't believe how well that worked... I feel like I don't have enough books, or enough books of different/same colours for that... but does it ever fill the space more nicely. Pretty!! I want to do that now, number and colours of books be damned...

I didn't think I'd have enough brightly coloured books either. When you look at the 'before' photo, it looks like all my books are bland colours... who knew I had so many orange spines?! Try it!

It really does look wonderful!

I would hate to disrupt my own genre/size hybrid system, though.

good work!

I loved Oh The Glory of it All... I am so glad to see it on your (beautimous) shelves!
