Its my dream to have a library ladder in my house someday. Floor to ceiling bookcases offer plenty of space to showcase a vast collection of books. A ladder gives access to books placed high on the bookcase.
Rows of matching Billy bookcases from Ikea work well here. Consider that the books and accessories offer the pop while the bookcases provide the background. (contemporary living room by Smith & Vansant Architects PC)
