Styling Part 4 of 5: How to style a bookcase

Happy Wednesday!

This is going to be the last post on styling before revealing the princess of styling...although that's not a fair hint since I've gushed about her many times before on this blog. But from the photos I post tomorrow you'll understand why.

The same tips for styling a table top can be applied toward a bookcase. Of course books are the main course in any bookcase, but think of decorative objects surrounding books like the garnish!

Objects can include:
  • photo frames
  • candles
  • book ends
  • vases
  • boxes
This is a great way to display your treasures without seeming too cluttered.

Check out these beautifully styled bookcases. And my favorite trick is to paint the inside of the bookcase a contrasting color to your walls. This will give your books and accessories a beautiful backdrop to pop against.
