A marble bookcase takes ‘office elegance’ to new heights.
Styling a Marble Bookcase
Incorporating marble into a bookcase for your home or office brings a refined elegance – while packing a ton of style potential. Here are a few ideas to get you started on decorating your new marble bookcase.
- Marble Bookcase Tip #1: Play with spacing. Regardless of the material type of your bookcase, paying attention to the spacing between your books can mean the difference between bookcase style and bookcase clutter. While shoving as many books as you can fit inside your bookcase may feel literary, it’s bound to contribute to a cramped, disorganized ambiance. Leaving room for open space between rows of books will help to maintain a clean, elegant aesthetic.
- Marble Bookcase Tip #2: Keep it literary. Of course, keeping your books organized and evenly spaced doesn’t have to mean saying goodbye to a literary feel. If a literary feel is indeed what you are shooting for, consider playing to a vintage aesthetic. Leave some open spaces between books (see the previous tip!) and incorporate rustic-chic wood and metal decor. Bonus points for distressed/weathered finishes; extra bonus points if the decor references literary works or characters!
- Marble Bookcase Tip #3: Incorporate matching marble decor. Finally, don’t be afraid to bring out the marble of your marble bookcase. Marble bookcases are unique and often hard-to-find – so embrace the one-of-a-kind look of yours by incorporating a matching marble vase or figurine (or two or three!).
