How to Style a Bookcase
Styling a bookcase can be a tricky task to master as they often look too cluttered or empty. Here are a few tips on how to style your bookcases in a way that feels organized and visually appealing. e0df3a63ddc97416b73f63c40f4a8e69 1. Vary the scale of the objects you're placing on each shelf. From large items set back, like the frames below, working smaller objects in toward the front. Alternating stacks of books horizontally and vertically from largest to smallest like shown above adds loads of interest.

2.  Group smaller items and collections together for a cohesive and uncluttered look.

3. Just because it's called a bookcase, doesn't mean it has to be strictly for books! They're a great space to display wall art and unexpected items.

6. Finally, use color to organize. By staking your books by color coordination and keeping the majority of accessories to a monochromatic palette, it makes for clean and uniform space.
