Color Theory

So I've seen a bunch of posts about arranging books by color and I thought I would give it a try to spruce up my bookshelves. Honestly it didn't work out quite as I had hoped but that is mainly due to the middle shelf being just a bit to short to fit in some of my books. I also need more green books. I definitely like it better though, maybe it's my slightly OCD tendencies taking over but it just looks so much more organized. Which of course is ironic because before I rearranged them I had them all grouped together by series and on different shelves depending on if I had read them yet or if they were worth reading again, among other categories that I'm sure only my crazy brain could figure out. By now I guess I should realize that I always pick form over function! Unfortunately my bookshelf is currently the only part of my room that reflects that. Maybe I'll have to do a post about a weekend room makeover. That could be very fun!

Here are the before and afters! I do think it works until after the black, where I put all the books that couldn't fit on the second shelf. And like I said a little more green would be nice to fill it out. I'll have to keep that in mind when I'm a famous graphic designer, designing hundreds of book covers!


Later gators!

It's beautiful! I wish I had enough books to do that. I blame it on the internet.

Glad you like it! I wish I had bigger bookshelves, haha, this is about half of my book collection, all my other books are spread out on various shelves around my room.
