How to Style Bookshelves

January 29th, 2018

If you follow me on Instagram, you made have seen me flood a bunch of pictures of these custom shelves I designed for a project in Atlanta.  They turned out so fun and I could not wait to share.  How to style is one of my most frequently asked questions, so today I’m going to share how I came up with this concept.  I needed an interesting TV wall for a gameroom, but didn’t want just a TV mounted in the center of the room. It needed some interest. I started with an offset TV and then added my shelving.  From there, I needed a thought out, cohesive theme. The color scheme of this project was pretty light blues, white and punches of gold.

I rendered the space to scale and added in my accessories.  The end result is pretty close. I love the overall look.  I bought books from Books By the Foot in their wrapped in white series. I wanted to add a lot of stacks, but didn’t want the content to be distracting.  The end result was the perfect space filler while staying true to the color scheme. From there I added fun gold accessories and voila!

The key to good style is careful planning!
