Bookcases & Shelves for Decoration
Beautifully decorating a bookcase is a task that requires patience, dedication and (of course) style. While anyone can take a bunch of old books can throw them haphazardly on the shelf, only an individual with a keen eye and attention to detail can truly decorate a book case. Here at Book Décor, we understand the art of decorating with books, and would therefore like to offer the following suggestions on how to transform your ordinary case into a classic masterpiece.
Decorating a bookshelf is entirely about balance. While you definitely want to beautifully display the books you have, you should do so with a modicum of poise. The problem that many people face when decorating a bookshelf is that they don't have enough books. Sound familiar? If so, you need to get creative. Rather than stuff all of your books on one shelf, use other accessories to break up the monotony and make the most of the space.
Have only 50 books but need to fill two large cases? Divide your collection and then stagger them on the shelves. Use candles as bookends and/or take unique house hold items and display them in the empty space. Want to increase your collection without spending a fortune? Invest in some quality leather-bound decorative books. Leather-bound books (regardless of the text inside) are beautiful additions to any home and certain to improve the look of your bookcase.
At Book Décor, we specialize in collecting, preserving and selling decorative books. The books we feature are used almost exclusively for ornamental purposes. While all of our products contain rich texts, they are all imported from Europe and therefore printed in foreign languages. This makes them ideal investments for home décor that will never go out of style!
