The attractive bins on these open shelves hold books, files and heaven-knows-what because we can't see it. Mixed in with the display items, the bins themselves become display items. A handful of books have been covered with attractive wrapping paper or wall paper. You don't need to hide books — it is an office after all — but some reference books or binders aren't all that attractive. If you are focusing on creating a very pretty space, this technique will turn your books into display items. This will work best if you have a small number of books that you can group by subject so you can remember which is which. If you need to see the titles of your books, grouping them by the color of the covers will make them look more attractive.
