We love bookcases. We love color. Put them together and you have something even dreamier than the sum of its parts, worth looking at and lingering on for a long, long time. If you're thinking about painting your bookshelves, you'll find plenty to be inspired by in this collection of shelving in every color of the rainbow.

Nearly all of the trim in this Swedish house, and all of the bookcases, are painted a deep teal green. See more at Hus & Hem.

From AD Russia, a cobalt blue bookcase whose bold color is equally as arresting as its eye-catching shape.

The overall light blue color—on the bookshelves, the door, and even the library ladder—gives this room from Country Living a beautiful, calming feel.

If you love purple, you're sure to love this room from My Domaine.

A whole wall of bookshelves painted pink might seem a bit Barbie, but in this home from House Beautiful, a light, glossy pink telegraphs sophistication.

Deep red adds energy and drama to a library from Architectural Digest.

And finally, from Livet Hemma via Bright Bazaar, a bookshelf in canary yellow, to add a little bit of cheer every time you reach for a volume.

Can't get enough of book displays to fulfill your inner bibliophile? Don't miss these perfectly imperfect, dreamy libraries.
