bookshelves …

March 2, 2010

i always find it interesting how people organize their bookshelves.

as for me, i’m terrible at it.
here are some tips from real simple.

  • try arranging the shelves with solid color items for maximum pop.
  • fill the shelves with favorite family photos and heirlooms.
  • style with unexpecting items, like an eye catching antique or statue.
  • organize a colorful collection of found objects.
  • everything doesn’t have to match.
  • find a few striking objects for an interesting display.
  • paint the interior of the book shelf a few shades darker than your wall color.
