bookshelf inspiration

As my living room built-in bookshelves get closer to being completed, I’m chomping at the bit to style them!  I love built-in shelving; it’s are a great way to add character to a room, use up negative space (like the corner in my living room) and show off your favorite photos and collections.  There’s no right or wrong way to style your shelves, but a good mix of books, art, photos and trinkets that hold personal meaning are a great way to show off your personality.  Here are a few of my absolute favorite inspirational images of drool-worthy bookshelves:
