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.
More than books. The key to beautifully arranged shelves is variety. Fill some shelves with books (don’t forget to switch between lining them up and stacking them) and fill the rest with art, objects, and houseplants. Focus on letting each collection of items tell a story—the baskets you picked up on your latest trip to Mexico, or your love of black and white historical photos.
Background story. Striped wallpaper on the back wall of these shelves gives these lofted shelves even more character. Try repositionable wallpaper if you’re afraid to commit to a design. Mimicking built-ins, a combination of a low credenza and two slim bookshelves almost perfectly fills this wallspace, mimicking the look of built-ins.
