An organised bookshelf is a game changer in a home.

E-book popularity is on the rise. But for bookworms who still prefer the feel - and the look - of real books, here are four different ideas on how to style your bookshelf as a decor statement. 

COLOUR BLOCKING:

This will require an artful eye, and will brighten any room. A colour blocked bookshelf is sure to be a stand out feature. 

It may take a while to get right, but there's something satisfying about a colour co-ordinated bookshelf.

MIX AND MATCH:

BACKWARDS:

Book lovers will immediately see the impracticality of this suggestion. However turning the spine around so the pages of the books are facing out creates a neutral, streamlined display. For those who don't access their books on a regular basis, it is a chic and clean style to try.
