It’s official, bookshelves are not just for books anymore. It’s more like the conversation starter in your living room that allows you to show them what you’ve got. Who, them? Them, guests. From the snoopy folks who like to like to see what you’re showing (and hiding) to honest bookworms wanting to borrow (and never return) some of your treasures – bookshelves have come a long way from being a piece of furniture where books are dumped. So here’s some inspiration to dress up your shelves.
Tip 1: Arrange it strategically – people judge a bookshelf by the books you own
Tip 2: Pepper it up with décor – add a curio here, a framed artwork there
Tip 3: Mix it up – blend vertical and horizontal arrangements
Tip 4: Make it pretty – get the good covers facing outwards
Tip 5: Follow a colour scheme – group books by colour, colour-coded shelves are a treat to the eyes
