Here's some simple tips to styling bookshelves.

  1. DON'T STUFF IT. You want your items to be seen and enjoyed so limit it to your favorite things. Keep some empty space so your eyes can focus on appreciating your displays.

  2. MIX IT UP. Bookshelves are for more than just books. Include decorative items to keep it interesting.

  3. VARY HEIGHTS AND DEPTHS. Lay books horizontally and prop them vertically. Add a trinket to the top of stacked books. Put smaller objects in front of larger ones, such as a large vase in back and small photo frame in front.

  4. MAKE IT MEANINGFUL. Treasures from your travels. Photos of loved ones. Your favorite books. Use items that make you smile.

  5. ORGANIZE. Keep large baskets or boxes at the bottom of the shelving unit to ensure balance. Store items like tech gadgets or office supplies in lidded containers.

All items here are shoppable.
