Pack it in, above all else, shelves are storage, so don’t be afraid to fill every last corner with books, artifacts, or spare vases and vessels.

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.
