Ideas to decorate a bookshelf

expedit1

Some time ago, I spoke of the famous “Ikea syndrome” , which all end up resembling power houses being furnished in Swedish giant. The other day I was talking about this with a friend, who kept telling me that even if it were true that there is an Expedit shelving in each house, each was different from the others, not only for its content but also by the way they decorate .





In an attempt to refute my friend, I plunged into the Internet for these racks ubiquitous and I found the pleasant surprise that there are many examples of good decoration with Expedit. I start with the picture that heads the post, I saw on the blog Nesting Place . In this case, the chosen shelf is low and has chosen to put baskets on the upper shelves, leaving the decorations along with books on the bottom. Maybe I would have done it the other way around but I understand that the baskets can double drawers.

If a week ago I had asked if he saw white furniture to decorate a classic space would have said no, but the fact is that the Expedit you have on these lines not “sing” with the other elements. The key is to decorate the shelves with items that match the rest of the room, as the old books you can see, a success that showed in House and Home .

For Unforgettable days of Taylor Rae we teach a black Expedit whose shelves are sold in boxes as Ikea. To me this model does not convince me, I get the feeling of being in an office file, but I understand that may be useful for collectors of magazines or junk.

At Apartment Therapy we teach a shelf on the other they have used as a room divider. This option is quite popular among my friends, because it gives some privacy and want storage space above. Wow, a real treasure for owners of mini stories.

The lower shelves are very versatile, and as we are taught in A lovely lark , you can take to put up bigger decorations as a former slate. I also love how you have placed the books by color.

Besides decorating the inside of the shelves, you can try to decorate with them, putting them in a room number. It is what we propose in Better Homes and Gardens , where have placed square to fill a large space.

I conclude with the option that I liked and that teaches us our former partner Marta Ikea Pirates , who teaches a Expedit used as a vanity unit. It makes me the trick completely, did you you?

In short, I’ll have to call my friend and eat my words. A little more imagination you may have something I going to get decorate your house with a Expedit with originality. Yes, my friend never removed from the head that are too uniform, maybe if instead of these Ikea shelves optaseis by others on the market but are less recognizable the result would be good too and of course win in originality.
