Bookshelf Accents

Monday, April 27, 2015

I have had the most difficult time creating a look for my bookshelf. Our living room doesn't have any built in bookcases, so I knew that I wanted to add a bookshelf to add some character. 
I got this bookshelf for Christmas, and love it for our little space! I am debating on getting another one for the other side of our fireplace to make it symmetrical. Thoughts? 

I have either received these accent pieces as gifts or purchased them on my own, and I am still looking for more! Although it is so close to being finished, I am needing something to go on the top shelf. I am thinking a long, rectangular succulent planter like this. What are your thoughts on putting something on the wall above the shelf? I was thinking of possibly something like this mirror but don't want to overcrowd the space. I would love your suggestions!



Have any of you had a difficult time putting your bookshelf together? I would love any tips of advice or suggestions! 


  1. Oooo I love the succulent planter idea! Styling shelves is definitely not easy. I move mine around all the time! I usually go with the less is more philosophy.

  2. Styling shelves is the bane of my existence...I got rid of ours because I could never get them to look right!! But yours are looking great! Def do with something above the top shelf on the wall!
