Artfully styled shelves create a dramatic focus in this contemporary hallway.
A built in bookshelf is a fabulous decorating opportunity in a contemporary hallway! Instead of packing the shelves with mismatched books, try taking a more artistic approach. Propping and stacking beautiful books artfully; incorporating family photos; and arranging decorative objects creates a well-curated accent space. Remember to leave breathing room - white space around the vignettes allows each shelf to be viewed as a work of art.
