Styling Bookcases

I’ve been collecting my favorite little objects and trinkets to style my bookcases. If you do quick ebay searches of “porcelain bust” or “ceramic bust” you can find some cheap and interesting pieces. I also like “vintage ceramic urn” for pretty vases. I’ve also used little pictures, small artwork, birdcages and boxes. What do you use to make your bookcases pretty? Suggestions?

    I'm kind of into adding an organic feel…I've been trying to add orchids, small succulant type plants …things like that on my shelves. On my kitchen ones I'm trying to put out bowls of fruit. I guess I'm just trying to bring the spring inside.

    Its kinda difficult for m e to arrange this pile of books in a bookcase. I don't know how to group them.

    I have some framed artwork leaning against the back of my bookcase and I really love how it looks. I'm also planning on adding a trio of petite terrariums to keep it fresh and light. Good luck ebaying!

    I have so many books, it doesn't leave much space for other stuff. Plus, I grew up in a house full of knick knacks and randomness that I always said I'd have an anti-porcelain dolls and figurines rule in my house. Just more stuff to dust!

    So right now I just have unused candles of all shapes and sizes around the bookshelf.

    First of all, I love all of these bookcases. One of the first things we did when we bought our house was install floor-to-ceiling bookshelves in our family room. I adore them! We have a long ways to go, in terms of filling the shelves, but I currently group my books according to color, and in some cases subject matter, and then place photos and things we've picked up while traveling in between (maracas, conch, etc.)

    I also have some paintings propped up in the shelves.

    I like vintage cameras in there. Vintage eyeglasses as well.

    Really pretty bookcase. The white color is clean and neat. And I love that you can display not only books all sorts of knickknacks and mementos.
