Living Room Shelf Redo (Again)

Living Room Update // www.thehiveblog.com

Hey friends! Happy Tuesday!

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that, one weekend while I was home, I redid my bookshelves in our living room. I redid them not that long ago (post about that here) but I was just feeling inspired so… It happened again! And I’m super happy with them! I brought in some more color this time because I got to thinking how much I love the warm oranges that were in our living room pillows and how I wanted to pull that color family over to the shelves. Most of my living room art has soft blue in it, which I couldn’t ignore, so my new color story for these shelves is soft blue and oranges. Now I just need some blue or orangey lamps to go on our library table to replace the black and white ones! (I still love those lamps, but not for this room anymore!)

Of course the bookshelf update led to a few other room tweaks, so here’s what we’re now working with! πŸ™‚

There we have it! I think one of my favorite things about this redo, other than the added color, is the pops of bright gold! I think that adds a fun touch πŸ™‚ Also, just a little tip: If you want to incorporate more books into your shelves but feel like the colors are random, turn them around! Stacks of backwards books look awesome in my opinion!

Do y’all have any bookshelf design tips or tidbits you want to share?! I’d love to hear in the comments below!

Thank you SO much for dropping in today. Y’all are the best! XO!

    I redo our bookcases all of the time!! It starts with moving one thing, then another … next thing I know I’ve spent 3 hours on it and everything is completely different. Oh well. Looks great!
