Shelve By Color

I usually organize by books by type. Education books - shelf one. Children's books - shelf two. "Beach reads" - shelf three, etc. etc. Don't know if I would ever be able to locate the book I was looking for with this organizational tactic, but it certainly has some aesthetic appeal... image/freshome

Looks like a rainbow by colour, looks pretty as an installation but i wouldn't be able to find a thing!

I organize pretty much like you do.

thanks for stopping by my blog!

95% of the reading materials in my house are magazines, all architectural/design and all basically the same colour. I have about 3 percent colourful, interesting looking art/design/architecture books, and the other 2% are all white-spined, serious looking books on architectural discourse, urban design and sociology.

In short, my bookshelves are the epitome of boring. I dream of having enough colourful books to colour code! One day...
