They are spine bookcases, metal (sometimes wood) up the back attached to a heavy flat base with thinner shelves (let's say around ten) attached to the spine. Mine are metal, maybe about 5 or 6 books sit on each shelf, very sturdy, the base isn't going to just tip over if you bump it. But why are you always bumping into furniture...are you always walking around your place drunk? And not everyone has kids. SURPRISE!! Some people just don't want them lurking about knocking shit over. Some people hate them. Some just haven't found the right person to have unprotected sex with yet. Some are just too busy wandering around their houses drunk knocking shit over. Find me a bookcase that holds that many books but takes up a very small area and doesn't attach to a wall and I'll sell mine to you for a dollar. Probably why you see them so often. They serve a wonderful purpose. Also, if ten books were to fall from 2 1/2 feet up onto you, I doubt you'd lose your life or limb. Unless you are made of glass and are only 2 inches tall.

White walls, maybe a citrine or raspberry stripe on the ceiling? A very pale grey is always an easy standby color that looks good with anything but your closet has a door on it, so don't think you are stuck with some color combos because of it.

Don't move in. Find another apartment. If the one thing you really hate about this place, and it's the thing that takes up the most surface area in the entire apartment and it is in every single room in the apartment and you can't do anything to change it, you can only try to hide it, then don't live there. It's one thing to not like a fireplace, or a countertop, or a few window coverings...but to dislike every single wall in your entire apartment...well that's just so much wasted energy on a place you'll never feel comfortable in. Don't live there.

Congrats on the new house and yes, it's totes doable. Since it is such a big project, have you thought about plans for the backyard yet? As someone else mentioned, maybe consider french doors opening up to a lovely patio in the future. Better to give it some real consideration now, than to regret what you spent money on 5 years, 10 years from now.
