Bookcase Style

"Style is primarily a matter of instinct." -Bill Blass 

So you've purchased that really cool shelving unit or maybe have had bookshelves built in to your family or living room area.  Now what? How are you going to adorn those shelves?  This is one the most common questions decorators face from their clients.  You can't leave those shelves empty.  Here are some tips to help you "Style your Shelves"! 

1. They are called bookshelves, so find some of your favorite books or some decorative books to start with on the shelves.  You can arrange your books both vertically and horizontally.  Depending on your style, use vintage books or cool coffee table books.  Don't forget some interesting bookends as well.

2. Layering the heights on the bookshelf are a great way to show visual interest.  You can pair tall items with wider or shorter accessories.  Placing an object on top of books that are laying flat is another great way to add style to your bookshelf.

3. Display collections of objects like vases, sculptures, or geometric shapes.  If you have items that have meaning to you, they can individualize your space.

4. Color coordinate the items on your shelves.  They can coordinate with the color you're using in the room or just add a pop of color to a neutral room.

 5. Decorate your shelves with interesting artwork.  It can be your child's framed finger painting or a special piece that speaks to you.

  • I’m truly grateful to the Spyweb Cyber security team for helping me recover my stolen Bitcoins. A month ago, I lost over CAD 230,000$ investing in a fake forex trading company, I was told I would make double my investment but these conmen kept asking for more money from one story to another. It was a very difficult time for me as I had invested all my pension money into this, while I was struggling financially and in pain after discovering they are crooks who were after my money, I decided to carry out some research and found Spyweb Cyber, a reputable cyber security company that has helped others recover their stolen money. I thought it was impossible to get my money back but to my surprise, the Spyweb team was able to recover all my money in 72 hours. I’m truly grateful for their service and efforts in restoring my life to me. I highly recommend them to everyone out there and please beware of these heartless conmen.

  • Me and my ex-husband at all times have always tried to stay friendly over again after our divorce which occurred in early September this year. So i met with this spell caster called Dr. Muguru on the internet after a long search. And he told me everything that i needed to do, and he also assured me that he is going to reunite us in just 48 hours later after his spell casting. So he started his work on Monday 27th Oct. You are not going to believe this. He is back!!! Yes, he really came back in 48 hours just as you guaranteed Sir. Now I’m fully persuaded that you are a legit and authentic spell caster and your website is the best i have ever come across. This is so mind-boggling for me. Anthony is back!!! I haven’t by any means experienced something like this before. Thank you so much Dr. Muguru I never expected such a result. Dream come true. Wow! You were so kind with me. “And may your kindness float back to you like ripples that float back to sea shore”. Thank you Sir for your precious help. I have never been so happy in my life like the way i am today. You are a genuine spirit.You and your work will never be forgotten for making me a fulfilled woman and reuniting me and my ex husband once again.. You are my hero.. The kids are overjoyed to have their father come back home for good. Sir here i am sharing your testimony just as i promised. here is his,Call/WhatsApp: +905380694285
