You’ve seen those impeccably arranged bookshelves in magazines and on TV. But how can you create that designer bookcase look at home?Well, the Lamps Plus design experts are here with 5 tips to style a bookshelf like a pro.
Arrange by Color.
Arranging books by color brings order and harmony to an otherwise chaotic collection. For an even more orderly look, take it one step further and arrange by size as well.
Leave Some Space.
A little breathing room on a shelf is a good thing. To get an expertly styled look, leave a little room between groupings of books. This also allows you to add more touches later.
Mixing vertical rows with horizontal stacks of books adds visual interest and a dose of personality. Horizontal stacks also provide a great platform to accessorize on.
Bookshelves aren’t just for books! Accessories like boxes, photo frames, and decorative objects elevate a basic bookcase into a designer display. Your books have never looked better! Shop Lamps Plus for home accessories, http://www.lampsplus.com/ho...
