Open shelving has always been a matter of preference in one’s kitchen, but elsewhere around the house — like, say, your living room — it can be nearly impossible to avoid. Everyone still owns books, right? The catch is that if it isn't done right, your display of beloved collections can make the entire room have a messy image.
First things first! Clear the clutter, make space by getting rid of any items that aren't beautiful enough to put on display. Yes, even those "classics" from your college. Stick to an even mix of items, maybe something like good fashionable collectibles coupled with orderly stacked books laid out neatly. After all, these things every well-styled bookcase has in common and they are the basics of styling a bookcase.
Check out some of the ideas we like to share with you, so that you can choose to decorate a bookcase well.
PRIORITY ONE - YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS
Purchasing a book for its cover ain’t no sin! Some coffee table book designs are so fashionable and beautiful. They deserve to stand out like an accessory.
TALL DESIGN PIECES
Always make sure to layer the heights on each of the bookshelves.
Shelves that are really tall need tall items parked on them. Otherwise, it gives an asymmetry image and rather would seem like something is missing. In this case, use long, tall vases with a base in different heights. On the other, a tall faux terrarium in a vase design too adds more visual interest.
Still favour a books design, why not? Then choose to place objects on a stack of books for added height, if need be.
BEAUTIFUL BOXES & PICTURE FRAMES
Nowadays, the market is flooded with niche looking boxes. What's the fun part here? Well, not only are they functional for storing little treasures and important keepsakes, they also bring in another texture or pattern to give the bookcase shelves more depth and interest. Couple them up with elegant and beautiful, simplistic picture frame to deliver your "story" is essential.
THINK OUT OF THE BOX
It's nice to break up books with beautiful objects like unique sculptures, vases, or geode crystals. What sculptures do is they break up the straight, repetitive lines on the shelves. They bring a historical element to the space and an earthly element to the look of your bookcase.
