"Graphic designer Nicole Balch (author of Making It Lovely) created an impressive at-home library by doing a full wall of simple (inexpensive!) bookcases with glass doors," says Apartment Therapy's managing editor, Janel Laban. "By setting them up in multiples, they create much more impact and give the room a real sense of style, purpose and visual interest."
