DETAILS: BOOKSHELVES

Andrea MaaseideComment

We're working on a home office right now and our clients just added built ins.  Philippa and I both love adding detail to the back of bookshelves - whether paint or wallpaper.  It adds such depth and really makes the items you display pop.  For our clients, we're leaning towards this beautiful, rich navy blue grasscloth. 

Adding grasscloth to bookshelves is really lovely...

But, I really LOVE the look of patterned wallpaper on the back of bookshelves.  

This patterned green and white wallpaper really elevates this china cabinet and makes this classic white china sparkle.  {Via Pinterest}

These Anna Spiro wallpapers would look amazing on the back of bookshelves.

Paint, of course, can also liven up hum drum bookshelves.

This kelley green on the back of these bookshelves is perfect and it really highlights the detail on the cabinet and drawer fronts!  {Via Traditional Home}
