If you want to go all out and create a soothing living room interior where your books blend into your space, then Sophie has some ideas: "My personal favorite is styling my bookshelves to blend in with other items such as plants, trinkets, and photographs.
"To achieve this, place a selection of books of the same height at one end of a shelf, holding them up with a plant pot, candle, or something heavy enough to withstand the weight," suggests Sophie.
"Then you can place another selection of books at the other end of the next shelf with a similar idea. Each shelf is a chance to create something different so you don't have to put books on it at all, you can mix it up as much as you like depending on how big the shelving unit is."
This look works especially well with large open shelving, says Sophie, as it gives you more space to spread out the books so they don’t look as cluttered.
Some, like Nicki, may want to take things a step further: "I personally only have on display in my home books that have a cover of either white, grey, or pink so they match my home decor."
