Bookshelves can be beautiful or disasterous. The key is mixing the right elements. Just like your home, bookshelves should be an artful display of you. The best bookshelves are ones full of interest and unique flair. Pictures, items from travels, pottery, books and other things of meaning are a great place to start, adding in aesthetic pieces is the finishing touch. It's not brain surgery but it does take vision and careful consideration to pull together brilliant bookshelves. Design always involves an equation but is never solved with the same formula. Each project small or large is so drastically unique. It's important to remember that.
