We're all well aware that every room in our home could appreciate some storage, but what about those bookcases you want to look pretty too? Think beyond stacks of books and magazine files! Bookcases are meant to be styled into a lovely representation of your style - sometimes the storage is just an added benefit.
Accenting television stands and consoles, some collections like Promenade include bookshelves, too. Flanking the sides of the television, you know these shelves will be viewed often! Take advantage of the storage space by placing any extra DVDs or television components in boxes or baskets - these will begin your beautiful accessorizing. Add accessories that are calming and won't distract your eye for your favorite TV show!
Take full advantage of open storage in your dining room like the Karlin Dining Cart to showcase your prized china. Whether it's your Grandmother's set or something simple you purchased yourself, this is a great way to display your dishes - simple or patterned! By strategically placing coordinating items like pitchers, bowls, and even mugs you've created a storage space for your dishes that's an impressive display, too.
Books and magazines can have their place too! Try mixing it up by turning them on their side and stacking them up for a different look or even a perfect display for an accessory or figurine. Try to coordinate colors when using many books, it helps to balance your eye through the bookcase in an appealing manner.
There's no place that isn't perfect for a bookshelf! Place some beautiful accessories, vases, family heirlooms, and coffee table books to create a focal point in any space. Hallways often seem bare and need a little something - bookcases are the perfect choice!
