Inspired by open book pages, IKEA is introducing their Billy bookcase in a limited edition run. The black-brown Billy features a printed pattern on the inside (designed by Susanna Löfgren) which jazzes up an otherwise basic bookcase. But you don't have to wait for this in stores — take this idea and make it your own! You can use your favorite wallpaper to coordinate with a room, or find decorative contact paper to line the inside of your bookcase. If you're really hands-on, you can even paint your own design. The best thing about this simple idea? When you move or change your decor, you can recover or repaint accordingly without buying a new bookcase!
