DESIGN IDEAS: SHELF LIFE

The pictures below are of an antique pine wall bookcase depicting three examples of how to best showcase your collectibles. Use this as a guide to designing your own shelves in any room in your home. The basic principles are the same for large or small shelving and any items you love can be incorporated if paired with other like or similar items. Take the time to move your items around for the best possible arrangement and mass smaller items together for a greater impact. Aim for balance and if it does not look good to you then move items around and try again. Accessories with varying heights also add impact and help keep the look interesting. Be creative and if it looks good to you, it probably does to everyone else!
