Color is a nothing but a blessing that we can’t be more thankful to Nature for! The sweetest of spices in life – it brings out the beauty in just about anything.
I hardly mentioned color in my last post here when I was talking about arranging bookcases. But the truth is that it is as important in decorating bookcases as a whole room in a home. Meaning thereby – there are certain rules of color when it comes to decorating and styling a bookcase and it all starts right from the beginning; when you’re selecting a bookcase!
Pick out the one that goes with most of the color schemes used in your home. It might be moving around the house (if its not a built-in) every year from living room to bedroom or most probably to the home office. It has to be something that could fit in easily.
Though, the built-ins are becoming more and more popular with the home owners but they couldn’t be a favorite with the rentals… keeping all possibilities at hand never disappoints one. However, there is always plenty of inspiration that built-ins, beautifully decorated and styled could provide.
Sticking with a consistent color scheme is always a safe choice and in case of bookcases, it becomes a much fun practice. Starting off with two main colors, add in a neutral one and add layers in small pops of color. I presume this recipe would do good with the ones who are just trying their hands on layering and styling in a small space. The smaller the space; the more challenging it is to tell a story with all the details. I believe; and that too with all my heart that decorating a bookcase is like telling a story with characters, colors and images that indeed exhibit sense of taste and love of the decorator…
