{ books, books, and more books }

The great bookcase debate! (I swear, the rocker debate will be next)!

I had so many books growing up. Funny, you would think i would read more, however my love of reading lies simply with gossip magazine and fashion inspiration reads. No non-fiction for this gal! However, i intend to do lots of reading with our little one. I really would love a bookcase in our nursery, however, we aren't so convinced there will be room for it.


OK.. so these are fairly overboard for a nursery, but still so awesome!

So, even though that look is slightly overboard for our purposes, it sill inspired me! I am thinking of something on the tall side that would have space for some books, some toys.


Here are my favorites so far...

Ultimately it will come down to me putting the floor plan together and get a handle on what fits best, give us the most space for the least buck! These are all different price ranges, but all give a clean,simple, modern style which is what we are after.



Enjoy your Thursday!

some amazing ideas. I just love the thought of using plate racks for books. So cutie pie!

niki: those are fabulous! It is one of my other ideas to use shelves like that, but we don't have a really good area for it either.

i love floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, especially built-ins [or having an entire wall that is bookshelves so it looks like built-ins]
