Decorating Bookshelves

 Decorating books

Decorating Bookshelves to Create a Functional and Attractive Display Area.

Don't just fill your bookshelves with a bunch of books. Use them as an opportunity to make a great looking focal point for you room. Accessorize them, arrange them, personalize them, and have fun with them. Decorating bookshelves in a thoughtful way will ensure they won't just be functional, they'll look great too! 

Getting Started 

Start off with an empty bookshelf so you've got a clean slate. Depending on what kind of unit you have you might want to consider painting or wallpapering the back of it to add some interest. 

Decorating Bookshelves with Books 

Obviously, bookshelves are usually used for storing and displaying books. But there's more to decorating bookshelves than just throwing books on them haphazardly. 
  • Use both horizontal and vertical stacks of books to create some diversity in the shelving unit.
  • Consider sorting them by color and/or size to create a cohesive look.
  • If the spines of your books are damaged or unattractive consider covering them in paper or fabric to make them look cleaner and prettier.
  • Use a mix of hardcover, paperbacks and magazines.

Decorate Bookshelves with Accessories 

Bookshelves are great for displaying all sorts of items. 
  • Use interesting items like small statues, vases and candlesticks to add interest to displays. Lean them against stacks of books or place them on top. An item with an interesting shape placed on top of a stack of books can create visual interest.
  • Layer items in front of one another to create depth in your display.
  • Think outside the box. A small mirror can look terrific when mixed in with books and other items. There are no rules as to what you can use when decorating bookshelves.
Fill Empty Space 

Bookshelves tend to look best when they're really full of stuff. But rather than filling them with a bunch of bitsy items that can look cluttered try adding some larger items like baskets and boxes. Not only do they look good but you can fill them with all sorts of things like remotes, manuals, and other unsightly items. 

The most important thing to remember when decorating bookshelves is to fill them with items that have meaning. Don't just fill them with a bunch of impersonal items for the sake of filling them. Just like the works of literature they're usually filled with, your bookshelves should tell a story.

Living Room:Luxurious Living Room Visualized by Eduard Caliman

This living room, with its rich and elegant contemporary style neutral palette, maybe your dream room; so where does it exist? Well, that's the surprise: it's a 3-D visualization, created by digital designer Eduard Caliman. As explained Caliman based in Leeds, "I specialize in creating very photorealistic computer generated visual interior and exterior projects. My clients range from architects to interior designers and construction companies, but also other studios visualization. "So in reality ... this piece is not the reality. But if you are planning a renovation or restoration of your space now, this type of "living model" can be worth its weight in gold for you - and so much easier than carrying furniture up and down stairs! Take a look at these images, we discover that it is actually more than just an exhibition, too. 

In a typical open contemporary style, this piece combines space seating / lounge, dining table and chairs (with a beautiful view over a large window!), And a kitchen that blends right into the vicinity of a white pure. Notice how the texture plays a role in this design: you can almost smell the sweet afghan throw on the couch, and the patterned carpet makes the floor wood grain and marble coffee table feel more comfortable. Finally, take a look in the mirror, with its setting "pen"; it is a guaranteed conversation-starter! So when the conversation begins decorating your space, keep in mind that there is an easier alternative to trial and error: digital creations of rooms which may occur under your eyes, and let you know before you purchased a stick of furniture if these "sticks" will make your dream room occur.
