Bookshelves & Art Displays

I'm always fascinated by how people arrange their bookshelves. Do they incorporate art and personal pictures? Only books? Are they color coordinated or a mix of everything? Here's a look at five different displays that I love (especially the last!).



Which is your favorite?

I like all of the bookshelves but am partial to the bottom one...only because you should see the rest of the house that goes with those bookshelves. If you haven't seen it before then you can go here to take a loo:

The top one. I love mixing all sorts of elements on my shelves and I have been obsessed with white coral lately!

I vote the third! I love the various arrangements of the books mixed with statues, like the horse. It's a decorative yet well-lived.

I like the first. I like the fact that bookshelves are not meant for only books, but you could rock on some really awesome looks with amazing artefacts and pieces.
