Books. We love them, we hate organizing them. When you have too many books and not enough space, bookshelves can turn into certified natural disaster areas.
Going on Pinterest for organizational inspiration sounds like a good idea, but their huge user base is both a blessing and a curse. Where to start? What is my style? How does that style translate into organization; specifically book organization?
Well, to help me help you, I’ve enlisted help of Havenly.com.
Understanding your style is the best way to begin any organization project, and Havenly makes it easy with an Interior Design Style Quiz!
In seven steps, hopefully, Havenly will help me.
After a few more questions like these…
… I had all the secrets to the universe! Okay, not really, but I did get insight into what my personal style was called!
Coming out of this style quiz throughly obsessed with the results, I decided to try my luck on Pinterest, this time with a little more detail.
One search for “scandinavian bookshelf” later and I notice the definition of “Scandinavian” from Havenly brought to life in front of me. Simple colors with a lot of texture.
One – more specific – search for “scandinavian bookshelf styling” later and I’m sobbing myself to sleep over how aesthetically pleasing these organization suggestions are.
Notice: the alternating positions of books (standing, laying, spine out, spine in…)
Notice: the featuring of textured objects like BLANKETS and PLANTS
Notice: the grouping of colors
Notice: MY ABSOLUTE OBSESSION WITH THIS NEW SELF REVELATION!
Not a lot of us know our style, and that’s okay! But in today’s Instagram turned Bookstagram world, defining your personal aesthetic is so important. Now that I’ve helped myself, I can help you. My first lesson: figure out your style!
