Just moved in book storage idea

Scenario: you've just moved in, everything is everywhere and all you want is to feel at home already. For us, that means among other things, having our books out and accessible. We didn't have a decent bookcase, so books stayed in boxes that took up valuable space, if only we'd seen this things might have looked better. These images from theshutdoor's Flickr page prove you can make piles of books look good with a little effort.

We realise this storage solution is not for everybody for obvious reasons – accessibility is somewhat limited, but as a temporary solution while you are looking for a permanent book storage system, it can work. To avoid a big messy pile that screams 'just moved in and overwhelmed' try creating smaller, carefully arranged piles of books in different rooms or areas. And please don't stack them too high, or you may have to cry 'timber….'

Theshutdoor's whole house is very serene and full of light, check it out here.
