I'm an avid reader, with a bookshelf in the basement, in the living room, and in the upstairs hallway (as well as having an actual library). My shelves are pretty packed with books, but it is a little bit of an assault to the eyes to have just rows and rows of books. I scatter other objects throughout - on the low hallway shelves that hold the kids' books, I have my old The Rescuers lunch box from grade school, a little box of jacks, a couple stuffed animals, etc. I'm not a big knick-knack person, but I do like breaking up the uniformity of my books with other things like a vase of flowers or a lantern or a framed picture.

That being said, judgy judgy... In your own home, do whatever makes you happy. Just because I like something doesn't mean I think other people's preferences are wrong. We have become so black and white, with an us-against-them mentality. It's DECOR, for pete's sake, not a plan for peace in the Middle East.

I pulled the medium blue from my Ballards rug for the back of my built-in bookcases/secret door. The walls are 2 tones of gray and the trim is white.
