Built-in shelves are beautiful features and add to the architecture of the home. They can be found in so many different rooms but when it comes to decorating them, it can be a little tricky. Some built-in shelves have movable shelves while others are fixed, which means they cannot be moved up or down. When you come across these shelves, you are at the mercy of the space in between each shelf and have to plan accordingly. When we walk homes with built-in shelves, we like to use several different elements to decorate them. Here are our steps for decorating built-in shelves.
As interior designers, we are often asked questions about our processes for decorating built-in shelves. Well, the process is simple. When you stand back and try to envision what elements are needed for the room and the built-ins, you start to think about what colors to use, what textures you can bring into the room, and how you can bring a sense of the homeowner into the space through the décor. These starting points direct our design strategy to provide perfectly curated shelves that reflect our client’s sense of style and memories.
We recently had the pleasure to redesign a music room for a client. It is a beautiful space with a fireplace and built-in shelves on either side. We started designing the room by picking out some beautiful colors to brighten up the space and bring it to life. Once the room was painted, we planned for the accessories. We picked out the décor and curated the right pieces for the room.
The final result is this beautiful room that our clients will love and will be able to enjoy. The eye-catching blue shelves draw attention to the bookshelves and the white accessories.
