Since these bookcases are in our living room, we wanted to decorate with items that were simple and uncluttered looking. We didn't want to feel like we were in an office! To accomplish this, we chose objects that held special memories for us, such as purchases from trips or favorite photos. To make a bookcase look unified, choose items that contain similar colors or finishes. Also, vary the heights of objects in each compartment and make sure to layer items in front of one another. This will create an elegant, modern bookcase!
