After all the furniture, rugs and wallcoverings have been installed, there’s one more thing you need to do – accessorize! Accessories, especially in bookcases, are a must. It creates another dimension to the design when you layer in objects of different heights, shapes, textures, and sizes. They’re the perfect finishing touch and elevate the space by adding unique, fun and personal details.
Our go-to accessories include coffee table books or collected books, bookends, photographs, frames, vases and cool geometrics.
But just remember that these items are not the focal point. They’re selected to further mix your personality into the room. So showcase your book collections with structural bookends or mix in some metallic geometric sculptures. It adds depth and interest allowing your eye to travel around the space.
And don’t be afraid to take it one step further! Wallpaper the backs of the bookcases. It’s unexpected, adds texture and is a fun way to create more dimension within the small space.
The most important thing to remember is to make it fun, unique and all about YOU! I hope this has inspired you to take a look at the bookcases in your house. For more design tips and bookcase inspiration, visit us on Pinterest or check out our Instagram.
