It was a decent looking shelf and then I thought with all the light colored decor I have in my house (the grays, whites and creams) I decided my bookshelf needed a little pop! A little bedazzle. If you ever need to give a blank space in your house a little pop just add a background color.
Because I did not want to be too drastic I went with a dark navy blue. I like to think of it more like a Royalty Blue (not a royal blue). It makes Metal pieces stand out (I love the gold and silver hues).
Here’s another tip:
“Just because it’s a bookshelf doesn’t mean you load it with a bunch of books.”
The exception to that is if your bookshelf is in an actual home library. If that is the case I’d say ok that’s understandable. But if your bookshelf is in a centralized area of your home like a living room, then loading it with books is not so appealing to the eyes. But hey, that’s just my opinion, I mean who am I? 😊
Don’t be afraid to jazz up your shelves but keep it simple.
Try laying your magazines or books face down instead of standing them up. Or you can combine both looks.
