These Bookshelves Take #Shelfies To The Next Level

Whether it's a meticulously curated compilation of books and precious objects or a haphazard hodgepodge of relics, what you have on your bookshelf says a lot about you. Carefully organized or not, shelves offer a visual snapshot of one's travels, interests, and experiences.

So, we thought we'd take a peek at how a few of our favorite creative San Franciscans choose to display their most prized possessions. We invited ourselves into six influencers' homes to take a look around and mine for the back stories behind some of the city's most perfectly styled bookcases. From an artist's library to a makeup pro's impressively organized goodies, get ready for some serious #shelfenvy.
