Decorating bookcases is a fun and creative way to enhance the overall look of a room. I love to shop my home when I am changing my bookcases. I enjoy changing out our bookcases seasonally as well. Here I am sharing how I decorated our bookcases for the winter season. I hope you will be inspired and get some ideas for how to decorate a bookcase for winter.

How To Decorate A Bookcase For Winter: 

Arrange Books: If you are using your bookcase for its intended use…storing books, start by organizing the books. You can arrange them by color, size, or genre. This not only looks visually appealing but also makes it easier to find specific books.

Mix in Decor Items: Intersperse your books with decorative items such as vases, sculptures, or framed photos. This adds visual interest and breaks up the monotony of rows of books. I have a couple of bookcases. One I use for mainly storing books and little décor and the other I use for mainly décor. Today, I am sharing décor for the latter.

Add Plants: Incorporating plants, faux or real, small potted succulents can bring a touch of nature to your bookshelves. I like placing them on different shelves to create a balanced look.

Include Artwork: Place pieces of artwork on the back panel of the bookcase or layer larger pieces against the back. This adds a layer of depth and can serve as a focal point. You can print artwork yourself or find beautiful pieces on Etsy.

Consider Lighting: If your bookcase has shelves with enough space, consider adding small LED lights or battery-operated candles to illuminate the shelves. This can create a cozy atmosphere. I have added lights and candles to my bookcase shelves to add a cozy and interesting atmosphere. Try lighting to give your bookcase a completely new look.

Create Collections: Group similar items together to create collections. For example, display a collection of vintage cameras, travel souvenirs, or themed figurines. For my winter styling, I am displaying mostly birds. I have scattered them on each shelf instead of placing them all on one shelf together. I think this brings interest to my design.

I usually love symmetry in my décor. However, there are times when asymmetrical design works best, as in the way I styled my bookcase for winter.

Rotate Items: Change the display periodically to keep things fresh. Rotate books, swap out decor items, or introduce seasonal elements to reflect the time of year. I enjoy this tip because I love changing things around. I especially love making the changes seasonally and using things I already have in my décor stash.

Leave Empty Space: Don’t overcrowd the shelves. Leaving empty space can prevent the shelves from looking too busy and gives the eye a place to rest.

The key is to any decorating project is to reflect your personal style and interests. Do not feel obligated to follow trends. Feel free to get creative and make adjustments until you achieve a look that you love.

Don’t forget to share this post with your family & friends. I greatly appreciate it.
