Styling Bookshelves

One of my future home wish list items is to have built-in bookshelves in the living room. I want to be able to display all the amazing books and collectibles P and I have found over the years. Though my wish is always the same, I have changed how I display things on the shelves we currently own. When I first moved in with Philip we arranged the books by his and mine. After integration I tried organizing them by subject (Drama, Non-Fiction, Fantasy, etc). Here in our NYC apartment they are arranged by color.

fullsizerender-11{Vary the direction of the books for each shelf}

fullsizerender-12{Small trinkets can go in corners if you have the space}

fullsizerender-15{Be careful about the amount of items you display with the books, no one wants to go through a maze before getting their read}

fullsizerender-14{Utilize the top shelf as well: you can put less read items up there, or special decorations}
