Breaking Open the Art of Bookcase Accessories

Designing bookcase accessories can be a tricky art!

But we are here today to tell you the in's and out's of a bookcase and how to make it look magazine ready!

1. Turn books on their side:
One little tip we always practice is not only rotating books from upright to on their side, but also facing pages out instead of spine out to give a look of uniformity

2. Add "objects":
"Found" objects, small sculptures, or unique items help to break up books

3. Repeat similar elements:
The key to a bookcase is to not get it too busy. By repeating similar patterns and elements you create a rhythm and purpose to the shelves

4. Be Monochromatic in Color:

5. Love negative space:
Don't add TOO much. Embrace open and empty areas

Happy bookcase decorating!
