Shelves full of books are awesome, but add some accessories and you have something special…
Bookshelves can be fun and a point of interest within a room…
Make sure to mix it up by adding items such as sculptures, small lamps, decorative plates and more. Stack books horizontally or vertical. Old books are especially fun without their paper covers.
As always, remember balance and scale – make sure there are vignettes within the bookshelves, but that neither of them are more important than the other.
Avoid a cluttered look by keeping groupings simple. Too many items will confuse the eye and create chaos rather than interest.
Assignment: Find a book shelf in your home and remove everything on it. Then start adding items back in. Look for things around you home that you can use and only use things that you love or that have meaning!
