There really are no rules on how to style a bookcase the right way, but rather there are a few guidelines that can help you achieve the the perfect look, not too crowded… but not too sparse.
Styling your favorite pieces doesn’t have to be a daunting task, I promise!
Use varying heights to add interest. And add height by laying books horizontally, then adding something on top of it. You can also use trays and stands for added height.
Incorporating artwork adds personality, and layering pieces of artwork can add depth and dimension. You can also layer cutting boards, trays, signs and more!
Always work in odd numbers, if you can! Groups of 1, 3 and 5 are much more pleasing to the eye than even numbers.
Mix together texture, size and tone but make sure to keep it to a single color pallet or style. Plants are a great way to add texture and color! I also love to use baskets, and baskets are also are great for extra storage. Make sure to place heavy big baskets on the bottom.
… then tinker until it is perfect! I played around with this bookcase until I felt like it was just right.
