We’re all for bringing the outdoors in, especially when it comes to a display as well-styled as this. Filter in potted greens within the shelves to instill a dynamic finish that breaks up the linear structure of the books. Take things a step further by sorting the book piles by color!

Leaning ladder shelves call for an eclectic display of items, going beyond just a stack of books. Deck the structure with plants, found objects, textiles and more!

For those who favor simplicity with a focus on a neutral scheme, rethink the typical

bookshelf styling

and display titles with the bind facing the wall. The clean-cut, monochromatic finish is pure perfection.

Small-space living calls for furnishings with multiple points of functionality, much like this bar bookshelf. Stick to a complementary or monochromatic color palette to keep the aesthetic cohesive.
