Recently I have had several people ask me how to arrange their built in's and or bookcases. Believe it or not there is a "proper" way to arrange your goodies.
These are just my thoughts not everyone may agree :)
Here are some Basic Tips:
Less is usually more
Alternate shelf content
Grouping similar colors together
Books are always a great look
Use different heights to create visual interest
Always use goodies you LOVE
Personally I think if using family photos keep to a minimum (just my opinion)
Here are some images to inspire you...
I am helping my dear friend Marla with her built in's in her living room, once we are done I will be posting before and afters!!!
