Tuesday Tips

Coastal bookshelf with a minimal deisgn approachGet ready for a new year, a new you, a new project, a new makeover and everything else new! If you want to start will something small your bookcase is a great place to start! We have a couple little tips to help liven it up and get your new year under way. We’re talking fast and easy things that anyone can do. You don’t need to be a professional interior designer (it doesn’t hurt if you are) or need to spend tons of money to create a beautiful bookcase. All you need are a few of these quick tips incorporated into your bookcase and you’re on your way. So here we go:

  • Start with color – A little color in your bookcase never hurts. This means painting the backs of your bookcase or only painting a square, or rectangle, to make it stand out. Another option is wallpaper. You can bring in patterns or textures if wanted.
  • Display art – Your bookcase doesn’t need to only showcase books or small accessories. Use it to show off some art too! Incorporating art into your bookcase will give it some life and grab the attention of the eye.
  • Add those accessories – Like the art, accessories give you the ability to have fun decorating the bookcase. They can be scattered around to give the bookcase a fresh look. These pieces will give the eye more to look at while scanning over the books on display.
  • Don’t forget the books – Your bookcase obviously needs books, but what it doesn’t need is a uniform, linear placement of them. Your books don’t have to boring! You can have fun with your books and display them in multiple ways. Laying them down, or leaning a book, will bring new space to the bookcase that also allows you to decorate with your art or accessories.

We’ve got a few examples of some great looking bookcases for you to use for inspiration to welcome in the new year. Remember to play around with your bookcase until you find what looks best. Good luck decorating!
