This charming bedroom reading nook makes the most out of plentiful natural light. A low shelf to hold favorite books, plus a smart side table with a rich gold base to hold a beautiful floral arrangement creates an inviting feel. Cozy elements like patterned pillows and faux fur poufs create the cozy feeling that every reading nook needs!
Skip the books and double up on storage by arranging bookshelves with vessels, boxes, trays, and decorative baskets that provide even more storage. This is one of our favorite ways to minimize visual clutter of tchotchkes and small loose items. Plus, there’s no wrong way to decorate your shelves with this approach.
Your bookshelf is one of the best places to showcase personal collections, such as meaningful artworks and sculptures. With this approach, it’s all about filling your shelves with sculptures and accents that have unique and interesting shapes. Adding them alongside books is a great way to add movement and break up the straight lines of your bookshelves.
Even if you're not a plant parent, decorating with a bit of greenery on your shelves will help break up the color palette and also bring visual interest to your bookshelf. There’s no rule for the plants you bring in but we recommend low-light greenery and cacti, since those are low maintenance
If you're looking for a fun way to liven up the mood in a room, punch up a bookshelf with bright accents that add pops of bold colors. This is great if you have bookshelves in a living room that has mostly neutral furnishings, or if you're working with a space that’s surrounded with stark white walls. Think of your shelves as a blank canvas for color!
This modern home office employs a linear motif seen through the straight lines of the desk combined with a pair of minimalist white bookshelves. Add warmth to an all-white room with a comfortable camel leather chair. It's the small details that bring a room together, such as hanging plants or small golden sculptures!
For a relaxing home office that's modern and minimal, keep to furnishings that are light and easy on the eyes. That means an armchair in light upholstery, a desk with clean lines, and a bookcase that looks like it's practically built-in to the wall. Ground it all with a contemporary rug that has soothing hues, like a pale green or pink, which will give your space a relaxed, airy vibe from the ground up. Think light and modern!
Make sure your minimalist room isn't too busy. A great way to break apart color on walls is with a statement piece of art. Here we used an abstract art piece that has green, yellow, and blues in it which spills into the room, tying the room together. Add a couple of accent pieces with comfy throw pillows, a bookshelf, and you have yourself a nice reading nook you can relax in with your favorite book.
There are many types of stylish storage options for a kid's bedroom! We love using open baskets and bookcases because they make it easy to access items they use daily. A basket can be great for blankets or dirty laundry and a bookcase is of course great for books and momentos!
