Color coding a book collection became a hot design trend last year, but had yet to reach HGTV. So when I saw it show up in none other than Ms. Kim Myles’ room designs, I was thrilled.

For book lovers, this is one of the simplest ways to turn your bookcase eyesore into an art exhibition. If you don’t have books in each color of the rainbow, start by grouping like colors anyway. It’s what I like to call “healthy therapy” for die-hard organizers (like you and me).

I’ve been posting some of Kim’s do-it-yourself projects seen on Myles of Style over at her blog. Check out her Cookie Tray Table (in the picture above) and Glass Ball Chandelier to get your DIY fix.
