A unwinding room from Vital Design.
Flip for Decorating: The Bookcase
Don't simply fill your racks. Shading them, mastermind them, enliven them, dress them, customize them. The books you store on your racks are only the beginning.
Empty your racks. Back them with shaded paper, or paint the backs a differentiating shading. This will help make the articles pop.
Sort books by size and subject. Expel and dispose of any tore tidy coats (unless you figure they may have esteem). Line books, some vertically, some evenly, in a musical example. This will calm the repetitiveness of rows.
Fill unused spaces with alluring boxes. These will help you (flawlessly) store everything from photographs to PC manuals. The pieces of shading will separate the columns of books.
Add earthenware production and different articles. Place family photographs or little gems against the books to bring the racks to life.
Be brave. Hang an encircled picture from the shelf molding.
The Finished Product
Voilà! The completed cabinet — a significantly more intriguing expansion to your room.
