I design a fair amount of bookcases for dens or as part of entertainment centers and I am completely in love with a popular new way of displaying book collections. Large collections are no longer arranged by title, author or genre, but by color.
It’s very eye-catching with rows of green books followed by rows of turquise colored books followed pale blue books. It’s like instant literary art.
I suppose if your book collection is limited you could make your own book jackets and pick a particular color scheme such as jewel tones or beach-glass colors. That’s one project I’d like to try if I could find the time.
