Remember when rainbow bookshelves were all the rage? When you had to put each book back in EXACTLY the right place to avoid spoiling the perfectly ombre-d ROYGBIV effect? Those days are over. More and more we're seeing a hipper, downtown, more relaxed version of the rainbow. Welcome to our hearts, colorblocked books!

As usual, our stylish house tour subjects know a good thing when they see it. These homes all utilize the graphic, colorful power of their bookshelves but without making it too matchy-matchy and high maintenance. They group in color chunks, making the look pretty but not perfect.
