Be your own decorator. In just a few hours, turn a cluttered, style-less mantel or bookshelf into your living room’s show stopping focal point.
Arranging your books vertically sounds good, but have you tried changing the direction of your book placements? You’ll be surprised at how great it’s going to look on the shelves. Switch it up by placing some books horizontally to add interest and make the titles easy to read.
2.Small Touches Make A Big Impact
Add light objects on top of books and in free spaces to keep it interesting. Just be careful of going into knick-knack territory which may lead to clutter.
3.Arrange Books By Colour
Instead of arranging them according to authors or titles, create a palette by coordinating your books by colour. It’s a subtle way of adding colour to your room without making major changes.
If you can’t decide what to do with a blank wall, opt for a floating bookshelf. Not only are they easy to make, but pleasing to the eyes too.
Paint the inside of your bookshelves a couple of shades darker than the room walls or go for a contrasting hue if you want your bookshelves to pop. For maximum effect, try decorating the shelves with solid-coloured items.
