It’s a picture we’re all too familiar with — rows upon rows of bookshelves stacked with dusty, redundant books no one’s touched in years. When it comes time to decorate your own bookcases, naturally you want to approach things a little bit differently. And we’re on board! Here are some ideas for stylishly decorating your coastal cottage style bookshelf for Spring.
First, you’ll need a blank canvas. This Spring, we’re falling for all things aqua, and our Cambridge Double Bookcase is no exception. A statement item all on it’s own, its eight fixed shelves allow plenty of room for experimenting with different decorative schemes.
Mixing books with your favorite items and collectibles is a great first step in creating a fantastic, Spring bookcase. To keep a balanced look, make sure to organize items in groups of 2, 3, and 4. Our picket fence fish, for example, look delightfully cohesive when grouped in between books and other decorative objects.
Even the most functional of bookcases can still be charmingly chic. Our Coastal Baskets reflect the beauty of our oceanside home and serve to house anything from everyday items to beach towels.
Creating visual interest is an easy task with our Decorative Shell Accents. Show off your unique style and whimsical spirit by sporadically placing our shell accents around your bookcases.
