Quick sophistication. Quirky collections—like the owl figurines here—are just the thing to break up a book lineup. But this eclectic shelf illustrates another key concept to a polished shelf: Pull books to the front of the shelf. Pop-up shelves, crates climbing up the wall add another dimension to this living room, plus the chance to mix hung art in with the boxes.
Mid-century inspiration. The slender proportions common to mid-century modern architecture inspired this shelf—and the slats it bisects. The fringed gourds show the power of the rule of three: Group accessories in trios to make them look like a collection.
Keep it simple, paint things white and edit down your display. It's a kind of magic trick that makes anything look more pulled together. Let in the light, a two-story bookcase of wood and glass acts as a room divider and light chimney, bringing sunlight into the parlor of a remodeled San Francisco Victorian.
