Styling an eclectic bookshelf is a challenging art form, even for the most well-read among us. But at Consort, we think it’s fun to play with the countless possibilities of combining different styles of décor to express your chicest self on the shelf. Nonetheless, it takes skill to balance books and decorative accents to build big pops of personality without overcrowding, to create interest while also exercising restraint. We like to create a rhythm between fuller and more empty vignettes, along with a few curved and diagonal lines throughout to draw the eye from shelf to shelf. From books to brass objects to bold works of art, we’re here to help with some of our most stylish bookshelf images to inspire and improve your shelf life.
Scroll for some seriously chic shelfie inspiration paired up with some of our favorite bookshelf décor.
