Bookshelves are an essential tool in your styling arsenal. Book collections are the no-brainer way to add personality to a room. But sometimes you need a breath of fresh air and this week’s Idea to Steal is just that.
What if, instead a cacophony of random titles, all those different colors and fonts screaming at you, you just turned the spines around?! Suddenly, you have a soft, neutral and monochromatic look.
My dear friend Kirsten of Simply Grove actually caught a ton of flack for this concept when she debuted it back in 2010, but my how things change!
Nearly three years later the look is popping up everywhere. And given that I love pretty much every idea Kirsten ever has, of course, I’m loving this too. In fact, we already tried it in a little corner of the loft. I’ll be sharing a sneak peek on Instagram later today!
What do you think? Are you a fan of the anonymous bookshelf idea?
