Modern Design

An open and freestanding bookshelf with a trendy background like a vibrant wallpaper or a more industrial look like this raw face brick wall is a great modern décor idea for your book storage.

Colour Blocking

Books with bright opposing colours placed next to each other on a white or plainly coloured bookshelf will become a decorative focal point in a room. Adding a few quirky art pieces to the shelf will balance the look out perfectly.
