Styling a bookcase is a quick change you can make to any room. By editing your books and adding objects / framed photos / art, you'll have a new look without costing a cent. And while a bookshelf is the practical place to store your curated books, let's look at how to create even more interest by using handsome styling.
Organizing books by color has been around a few years but it seems fresh in a white room.
Monogramic books, art and accessories - lots of "calm" clutter.
Wallpaper backing creates interest. You could use contact paper, gift wrap or stencils.
A color edited bookcase provides a calm place to rest the eye.
Love hanging a photo on a shelves.
Cookbooks in the kitchen.
Any room would benefit by such shelving. How about cookbooks on such a wall in a kitchen?
Here's a bookcase design that makes no sense but I kinda love the look. The trend of not showing book spines puzzles me. While, I like all the creamy colors, I guess you'd not be reading these on a regular basis and certainly not lighting those candles.
As you know by now, we're going through our possessions with a fine tooth comb. I'll write about our books another time. For now, these styling ideas have got my mind percolating with ideas.
