Styling Bookshelves Revisited






I was helping a friend rearrange her bookshelves in her family room and I was going through my step by step process with her. How to style a bookshelf is something people genuinely struggle with, asking themselves. ?Oh God and open bookshelf, what do I put there that actually looks good"? Bookshelf styling is a little bit science and a little bit art.
The science part is achieving balance through scale and calculated use of negative space. The artistic part is what objects you choose, and they are completely subjective. The decorative objects should be a combination of the the things you love and the books you can?t part with. Incorporate the textures that speak to you, the small works of art you?ve collected, that little antique vessel you picked up on vacation, etc. My favorite way to style open bookshelves follows this process: 1. Start with the Bulky Items. Heavy or large scale objects work well on lower shelves to provide visual weight. Consider using a series of matching baskets or bins across the bottom shelf.

If the open shelving has closed hutch storage below, lucky you, you can store those bulkier or unsightly items behind the closed cabinets.
