7 interiors where open book storage has become a highlight
one Bedroom with home library in dark brown
Open storage of books is not typical for a bedroom: this solution alone looks unusual. In this very small room, an extensive home library does not create a clutter — all thanks to a single brown L-shaped module. At the same time, inside the module there are not closed shelves and cabinets, but ordinary shelves without walls. Interesting effect! The books themselves are arranged by color and complemented by figurines, candlesticks, photo frames.

The lower part is closed storage systems like chests of drawers and a workplace, the upper one is reserved for books.

In the interior in these photos, the closet is already really up to the ceiling. Moreover, it occupies the entire wall. But it is this large-scale solution that makes it stylish, as does the lower small module with closed sections (hinting an elongated TV stand). We can say that this is a modern reading of the «wall», once popular. Open shelves with books are narrow and compact — they look rhythmic, and the herringbone parquet board supports the dynamics. Although the library has become the main element in the interior, a massive dining table made of natural wood also attracts attention. And in order not to overload the room, the chairs were chosen transparent.

5 Home library in a spacious living room
This home library looks like a constructor, and for a reason. Directly behind the sofa is a shelving unit built into a niche, such storage is rare. On both sides of the recreation area there are three white racks of different heights. The play of rectangular shapes is supported by a square screed of sofa cushions. With such an abundance of books, the room does not look colorful and overloaded, as the palette is well-built. The bleached oak bookcase echoes the sofa legs and floor, the white shelves echo the coffee table, and the deep blue sofa echoes the sky blue walls. In such a frame, books seem to be an integral part of the room, and not items that just need to be stored somewhere.
