What Houzz contributors are saying:
9. Remember that sometimes smaller is better. If you don’t have the money or space for a large built-in bookcase, a small, low shelving unit can do the trick. Style it with your favorite vintage treasures. Stack books both vertically and horizontally for an effortless sense of style.
43. Few designs say Dad Chair more than a classic Eames-style lounge chair and ottoman. This white reproduction sits near a mirror-backed Ikea bookshelf holding eclectic accessories. Bookshelf: Expedit, Ikea; art: Victor Vasarely
Pets are a slam dunk when it comes to your home's telling your story. This painting of the family dog immediately draws the eye, revealing this pet's importance to the family while balancing the busyness of the bookcase. You can turn a photo of your favorite pet into an oil painting, a pencil sketch or a watercolor at Milltownart.
2. Find a corner for books that belonged to your loved one. Books are interesting, because together they create an indirect story line about the interests of a person. Honor the life interests of your loved one by displaying their books for others to enjoy and remember.
