22 Modern Book Shelves to Display Books in Creative and Beautiful Ways

unique book shelf design ideas for modern interior decorating


Bookshelves are familiar furniture items for stowing and displaying books. Bookshelves are great for indoor plants and small home decor accessories that beautify home decorating. The easiest way of home decorating with books is to place them neatly on a coffee table shelf or a wall bookshelf, personalizing interior design and creating unique and comfortable home interiors.

A stack of oversized books adds height, color, and texture to home decorating. Stacking books attractively on a shelf is great for creating this one-of-a-kind decor accent matching your decorative pillows, wall artworks, or vases. Classic and elegant dark color shades, like black, dark gray, deep blue, green, or brown colors, combined with one large book in a bright color, add a stunning accent to interior decorating.

Modern bookshelves allow creating fabulous displays with a few angled shelves. The diagonal lines bring a beautiful interior design element into rooms and add interest to home decorating.
