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.

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.

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.
