Trendy . . . or not?

Have you seen this new trend of organizing books by spine color?  Well, I tried it the other night and got totally frustrated.  Now there are books all over the living room.

So, tell me.  Are you on board with this trend, or is it all washed up?

It's not my favourite look if the entire shelf or bookcase is filled with books grouped by colour because then it looks like a rainbow. But a few stacks broken up by art or objets looks nice. It's something I've been doing for a couple years now - grouping by theme first, then spine colour too.

I didn't know this was a thing! I like it in theory. I think the red & blues look really cool together. I guess white is hard because there's lots of creams/ivory/etc. All my books are in storage, but perhaps I'll have to try this when I get them out (and have some sort of shelf!)

I rearranged everything over the weekend by genre. I especially like seeing my collection of decorating books. I also need to purge. I have my professional books in my office, but there's some overlapping and I should probably do some swapping out with those in the living room.

I looked at your blog. You two are ambitious--blessings on your venture!
