We believe bookshelves are the window into our family life and tell the story of who we are. Many of us have either built in bookshelves, wall shelves, or furniture pieces with shelving and have a difficult time accessorizing them in an effective way.Showcasing our collections of treasures, family photos and books can be a tricky task and end up looking like an afterthought instead of a prized feature of a room.
Let us share with you a few helpful tools to turn your wall of shelves into a wall of storytelling…
Edit out all items that no longer serve a purpose or speak to you.Remove old greeneries, tiny objects, and tired outdated pieces.
Our rule of thumb is nothing smaller than a cantaloupe belongs on a shelf.Combining large scale accessories with frames, books and treasured collections will provide a clean tidy appearance and also highlight features items.
In order to achieve a cohesive easy “read”, select an accent color and stick to one.From there, add a greenery source to give an organic element and texture, then photos, books and accessories.For example, if you want a fresh beach look, try blue accessories combined with brown books and wooden photo frames – clean, easy and fresh!If you prefer a monochromatic look, maintain a greenery source to let the accessories breathe.
Your accessories will tie your entire look together.
Yes, bookshelves deserve BOOKS! Even if you are not a reader, add books!Local libraries have book sales at least two times a month and is great fun collecting sets and color combinations.Remember, paperbacks do not count, only hardbacks (no cheating). Measure your shelves and buy more than what you think you need. Trust us, the shelves will eat books up! Select a color scheme and buy books within that range.Consider blacks and grays or browns and tan. You may even like blues if that is your look – go for it!If you own an assortment of mismatched books already – no problem, turn them around and show the page side! TaDa!
Bring it on! Here is your chance to create the story wall. Combine your favorites and select frames that compliment your accessories.You can choose to either use color photos, sepia or black and white. Again, all depending on the look you desire to achieve.Keep all frames simple and of similar appearance in color and texture.
Your accessories will tie your entire look together. They should all compliment your valued treasures and collectibles that tell a story all their own.Keep accessories in one color palette with clean lines and scaled appropriately.Mixing ceramics, glass, and pottery are all terrific ways to add texture. Just keep within the same color range.Adding baskets in neutral tones that compliment your scheme adds great texture and scale.
White items on white book shelves do not showcase well.
Glass items will not show up unless filled with greens, spheres, nuts, rock, etc.
Move small objects onto smaller side tables or with cabinets.
Play with shapes. Less is more!
Don’t be afraid to paint your bookshelves a different color or add a textural wallcovering to the back wall.This may be the perfect addition to draw attention to your feature.
Now take these hints and tips as you begin your own journey in creating the perfect bookshelf display! Have fun and enjoy!
This has been an action packed summer here at LL&A!!
We have participated in several events that have raised our awareness of wonderful products, sales tools and sources.
This past June, Leslie and Lauren attended Neocon in Chicago. Two days in the Windy City left them inspired and ready to share the great products they were exposed to. We always appreciate opportunities to explore the latest trends and products available. Bringing them back to Jeffersonville and sharing them with our clients enables us to provide the best solution to each project.
We are proud to share a few resources that they were very impressed with…..
Koncept is a perfect addition to any modern or contemporary environment. Designed with the most discriminating consumer in mind, these fixtures offer a variety of sleek, clean and colorful combinations for home or office. This line represents high quality LED lighting in desk, floor, wall and ceiling fixtures. We loved the Z Bar and the Splitty!
Its never too late to keep learning!
We strive to stay ahead in our design field and take pride in continuing to educate ourselves within our industry. Yes, this summer has been a fun one for us but, it has been educational too!
Leslie and Tammy attended a 4.5 hour seminar hosted by Koetter Woodworking to earn continuing education credits. A plant tour, product knowledge specification course, and an Andersen Window class provided us with all the tools and essentials we need when specifying these products. The plant tour itself was educational and inspiring. We would like to especially thank Randy Koetter, Brian Koetter and Mike Deacon for their hospitality!
Now on to additional Post Neocon classes in September!
You’re never too old to keep learning & be inspired!
