For years we have lived under the guise that bookcases can only hold things to be read. Well, move over literature, it's time for some pazazz! Here are some simple ideas for your bookshelves:

Work with Shapes
Any bookshelf should have a good balance of shapes to make an interesting visual for the eye. Think spheres, frames, planters of various shapes, bookends and vases. Make the eye move! 

Give it Life
Plants are always a great choice. Whether artificial or real, greenery always adds life to any lifeless spot.  

High, Low & Layering
The way to achieve a great silhouette when pairing objects is to keep in mind different heights (high and low) and to layer items with one another to create depth. This will, again, keep the eye moving and create plenty of interest.
