Books By Color

Like a lot of designers, decorating with books is one of my favorite things to do. Books say so much about the homeowners and, much like photos, books can conjure up memories of special times and places in your life. Besides dog-eared books read over and color, and glossy coffee table tomes, books can also be used to liven up a space as colorful accessories.

Lately, I’ve noticed that I’m drawn to shelves with books organized by color.

But, ohmigosh, who has the time to collect all those books? Well, there’s an answer –

Yes, you read that correctly. You can buy books “by the foot” – apparently, there are 10 to 12 books in a foot in any color you choose.

Like green:

Or blue:

Or red:

Or pretty much any color you want:

Depending on the rarity of the color, the books run about $29.99 per foot, which I think is a total bargain!!! Do you organize your book collection by color?
