We all know what it's like to get lost in a good book, but today, let's get lost in gorgeous bookshelves instead. I've long admired stunning built-ins (especially when they include a rolling ladder!) and hope to have a library filled to the brim one day.

So enjoy a little breather and admire these beautiful built-in bookshelves I've rounded up for your viewing pleasure.

We love organizing our books by color for visual interest.

Books don't have to go in a library -- they can work in the dining room too.

My kids would have a field day with a ladder like that.

I love the brilliant color of these shelves.

Oh my goodness, can you even imagine?!

This is such a dream corner!

Feeling inspired? I'm about to get on the phone with a contractor!

Tell me: What's the prettiest bookshelf you've ever come across?
