Bookcases vs Built-Ins….

New series where I’m having two similar things in design compete. For this one I wanted to start off with one of my favorite design obsessions: decorating with books on shelves. I like floating shelves but I also like when they’re enclosed in a case. But lately there has been some really slick built-in designs. So which do you prefer…built-ins or bookcases?

Love this look, so sleek and clean. I also like the way the built ins act as a headboard…

This high gloss color is everything to me. Whether it’s blue or colbalt, blue lacquered paint is gorgeous…

    I’m loving the cobalt blue painted bookcases. Def adds more interest to the space.
