5 Ways to Style Your Reading Nook

Looking for bookshelf inspiration? Here are five ways we love to style your reading nook and bookshelves! 



We love some colorful shelves! The rainbow color scheme is always so appealing to the eye. Don’t want to break up your series for the sake of color? Try for some smaller shelves that are all standalones!

House plants add such a home-y feel and the fresh greens really liven up a bookcase! Add some plants in here or there, or if you don’t want to give up bookshelf space to add a potted plant, grab a bigger one to place in front of your bookcase!

You know we love some candles! Sprinkle some book-related merchandise on your shelves next to the matching books of choice. Don’t care about match a series to an item? There are still tons of bookish items that you can feature on your shelves that doesn’t have to match a particular fandom!

Add a few show pieces by adding some decorations or artwork! Create some focal points by changing up the content of your bookshelves. A neat table-top piece of artwork, statue, sculpture, or even something as simple as a vase can compliment your bookshelf choices, or add some beautiful artwork! Book-related? Even better!
