Chic bookcases.

Changing your bookcase around is an easy way to spruce up a room, but sometimes its easy to get stuck on how to re-arrange it. I was desperate for some inspiration and here are some pics I found.

Hanging artwork on your bookcase is a great way to add layers. I must admit though I love the desk the most in this room!

What to you think of the colour blocking + artwork?

I think painting the back of your bookcase is a great idea. It just makes the display pop.

I love this masculine room with the sofa in between the two bookcases. 
What a lovely place to relax and read a book. I would maybe change the artwork to something softer though.

I absolutely love this bookcase. Its very chic and sophisticated.

The white bookcase is soft and feminine. love the rug too!

I think this is a study, but hiding your books etc in baskets is a great way to achieve a clean look in any room of your home. Love it!

I love love love this simple clean look. I think its what I would actually go for in my home.

What a great idea to add a bookcase behind your bed. It is something different yet practical.
