Shelf It

If you collect anything in large quantities, it’s challenging to display them in a stylish way.  If you’re a book lover like I am, you probably have tons of books and struggle with ways to keep your apartment/house from looking like a library-not that there’s anything wrong with libraries, I love them.  I’ll let you check out just one of my many bookshelves and get some ideas for how to style your own.

Hints:

1. Books look great stacked in varying heights…

2. Organize books by color and use bookends…

3. Stack books vertically if they’re the same size….

4. Use coffee table books in places other than coffee tables….like under a lamp or picture frames, etc.

 

 

 

Easiest way to be satisfied with how your bookshelves look is to play around with them.  It takes trial and error (and depending on your OCD and size of your collection a good hour or two). It’s a great project for a Saturday afternoon and will freshen up your shelves!
