KRIS Likes…. Bookshelves

“Every book is a quotation; and every house is a quotation out of all forests, and mines, and stone quarries; and every man is a quotation from all his ancestors.”  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is finally starting to feel a little bit like spring here in New York and that means … time for spring cleaning.  One of my favorite spring cleaning activities is re-styling my bookshelves.   It is a great way to freshen things up and give new life to your old objects and accessories.  When re-styling a bookshelf you should always be thinking of ways to alternate the color, sizes and orientation of your books. This will help give the shelves some visual interest and break the monotony of vertical rows.   Lighting and artwork on the surface of the shelving is a great way to give your bookshelves an additional design element without adding extra items that may leave your shelves feeling cluttered.  To keep a clean and tailored look always make sure to keep all the spines of your books at the same depth. Here is a little inspiration to get you started… Enjoy!
