Tips to Decorate and Improve your Bookshelves – Best Design Books discovered that Architectural Digest caught up with AD100 designer Suzanne Kasler to make a wonderful selection of tips on how to decorate and improve your Bookshelves.
Suzanne Kasler employed the same Frederick Victoria étagère in the family room she designed for this year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House. “It’s all the things I love, reminding me of where I’ve been,” Kasler says of the display. “Like a little art piece.” Here, she reveals her pro tips for styling an elegant yet personal bookcase.
First, think about scale. “When you’re choosing a bookcase, it’s important to think about scale and materials,” Kasler says. She chose this model for its slim shelves, open design, and mix of wood and brass.
Mix antique and vintage objects with new books. “I love pairing antique pieces like these miniature paintings collected from my trip to Belgium or these architectural paper objects from the Paris flea market with books that have just come out. Right now I’m really into the new collection of Louis Vuitton books.”
Add a light fixture. “If you can fit a small light fixture on the shelf, it’s really great for settling the piece of furniture in the room.” Connect the shelf to the rest of the room. “I love to place an object or piece of furniture in front of the bookcase. Here I used a chair and a wooden ball to finish the composition.”
