Design Musings: Layered Book Shelves

I'm all about layering, especially when it involves book shelves. It doesn't matter if it's a mirror or framed prints, I love the look when they are layered over a styled bookcase. 

This is my all time favorite.  The shelves, the books, the fabulous randomly placed prints.



The prints don't even have to match each other.

This over-sized art consumes the shelves but it looks fabulous.

The art repeats all the colors in this boho chic room.

Stacked vintage oils work too.

Another block-the-bookcase art that makes the room.

It even works on a small bookcase in a tiny bedroom nook.

More mis-matched art in this mix and match fun room.

I haven't forgotten about using mirrors in the same way as framed art.

The contrast of the white against the dark background makes these bookshelves and the room.

A layered mirror works in a very traditional room.

It works with bohemian too.

What about a very small mirror?

And last but not least, mirror and framed prints in a row.
I love that fabric on the sofa too.

Do you think you'll give this look a try?
Prints? Mirrors? Large?  Tiny?  All?

  1. Lovely pictures!! I use a landscape on the front of our built-in bookcases for most of the year. At Christmas, I put a large needlework there that says.....yep, you guessed it.....Merry Christmas!! Before I tried and liked the landscape, I had a bigger needlework there that said God Bless America. One day, I will probably put it back.....you never can tell :^)
    Blessings to you,
