Some great ideas!

But what is the point of stacking books with the spines and titles hidden? Last image. How would you ever find the book you were looking for with no means of identification visible? Crazy idea. Some one trying to be trendy! For effect but absolutely useless. Think again, you don't impress me!

I have a wall of books, mostly gathered in author groups. Some vertical, some stacked. But I can see the spine of each book. I think as well as being practical the colour and texture adds to the warmth of the room and is a large part of the decoration of that room. Love my book case!

Some beautiful spaces. Re No. 3 - I've had a "laundry" under stairs in a previous house...a great space-saving idea except when the washing machine needed fixing/attention. I love the colours of No. 2, and the classic charm of No. 25. The cantilevered bench in No. 14 is amazing! I also like No. 12. So many wonderful ideas!
