Yesterday, I mentioned how I adore Charlotte Moss' brightly colored, high quality leather albums displayed on bookshelves in her shop. Great inspiration for a home library, but not inexpensive. Kate's Paperie has a fab budget-friendly alternative: the Tribeca collection of man-made colorful binders, priced $25-$35 each, below.
Target's Real Simple office collection offers an even lower priced option. Their magazine holders and expandable file boxes, shown below, are about $12.90 each. These could be used to create shelves with graphic impact similar to the Moss bookcase above.
