Use bookshelves as a canvas to show off your design flair
Jun 3 2011
Finding a chic way to make a statement with your home furnishings is always a tricky endeavor, but oftentimes an underutilized area like a bookshelf could be an simple way for a quick update. According to HGTV.com, crafting a stylish bookshelf with items that create balance for the space will allow a homeowner to show off his personality and some of his treasured possessions.
Use bookshelves as a canvas to show off your design flair.
When decorating a bookshelf, you want to pick two or three primary colors that you can space evenly throughout the space. For instance, select white, blue and a pale green and use varying amounts of each hue on each shelf.
When placing books on the shelf, a good rule of thumb is to place them in the same place on different shelves to create a sense of balance. You don't want a completely uniform arrangement, but give your design some consistency for a bigger impact.
Putting some light on the subject is always a great way to grab attention, so use some soft sheer shades to really make your style choices stand out. These provide superior light-filtering ability while still providing a view to the outdoors.
