Spotlight what’s precious. A teeny tiny shelf calls for a really special something. Display an item that has a personal story behind it, because inevitably people will ask for one. Give them space, extend built-ins to create a frame for the door or adjoining room. Take advantage of all that space by displaying photos, art, and some well-chosen trinkets among the books.
Find a theme. A palette of ivory, indigo, and naturals helps these eclectic shelves look pulled together. If your shelves are a blonde wood tone or white, choose deeply colored objects that contrast.
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.
