{trendspotting: rainbow bright}

A little trend I've noticed: displaying the books on your shelves so that they themselves become a work of art! How, you ask? Align them in a color-coordinated fashion and create a rainbow!! The look is bright and happy:

How cute! And the pug in that last photo takes the cute factor up a notch ;)

Now I would love to arrange my books like this, but dont think I have the patience and I always arrange them by author so that won't work

I LOVE to see things grouped by color! I did my own library shelves like this... it didn't take as long as I thought it would. I think it's an intuitive way to organize. Great post!

I took a shot at organizing he bookcase in our living room by colour. It's kind of a neat look :-)But mine isn't anywhere near as colourful as the shelves in these pictures!

Nice! But that wouldn't fly in my house, my kids would mess it up!
In my perfect home, I would have it tidy!

Really like the one from the Decorista. Very cute to match all the books - just like I match my clothes by colour in my closet...LOL!

I love this idea, I think it looks awesome, one needs a really big book collection to pull this off! ;)

Big, big fan of this look...and the pug too! :)

Love rainbow books- I did this to our bookshelves upstairs a few months ago and really love it. The inspiration shots you included with the dark bookcases are amazing!!!
