Inspiring Rainbow Bookshelves

image via One Kings Lane

Arranging books by color is not really a new idea, but I still feel like it can look really fresh and modern. I think a trick is to not be strict about the shades of the colors. Go ahead and put that forest green book next to the mint green book next to the turquoise book. It will look like a more artful arrangement. Bonus points for coordinating your accessories!

Here are a few of my favorite, less-common inspiration images!
