Books Everywhere

Every time I browse trough beautiful homes I notice something. The places are so beautiful because they don't have books. They are clean with lots of empty spaces. Then I look around and reality hits. Yes, I do love my flat but oh my, how many books I have. I try to contain them in white Ikea Billy's bookcases with glass doors to minimize the colourful noise. But still, too many. So lately I am looking at books solutions. Below are some pictures of beautiful books display. I had a room like the one below, where I organized my books but then I decided to use the room as a painting studio and moved the books in the living room.

Below is another picture with books contained in one space.

This is another display with less books. Not me:-)

In the end what should I do bin them? Never!!!!! I love my books. I bought a kindle. That is helpful, I read a book and if it's great I buy it in paperback otherwise I leave it in my kindle. I am saving lots of space and spending more!!!!!!!
So lately I thought of storing books in the corridor. I have a long white corridor and I am thinking of adding white shelves on one side just below the ceiling. It won't clutter the place and will free a bit my bookcases that at the moment contain double rows of books. I found the shelves below that I think would be perfect. They will be available in February in Ikea stores. Now I need to get someone to fit them because I can do many things but I will never manage to fit a shelf in a straight line:-))))))))))))

If you have better ideas please let me know. I guess the book shelves above will be quite invisible.
