Personal library

Displaying books is one of the easiest ways to add character to a room. When stacked creatively, a loose pile of books and magazines can become a focal point in your room while also making your favorite titles easily accessible.

(above left) Domino Creative Director Sara Costello painted the wall behind her bookcase a chocolate brown to add depth and make her books stand out. (middle) Kate Spade ad shot in a library. (right) Living room of PR exec Elizabeth Blitzer, as seen in Domino.
My favorite bookcase at the moment is the Expedit from Ikea. It costs a mere $149, and is one of the smartest purchases I have ever made. (above left) Domino Senior Market Editor, Tori Mellott, uses the Expedit as a clever room divider in her New York studio.

BTW- how amazing are these?! West Elm's Turning Bookends will only set you back $29, and would look amazing on any bookcase or console.
