Well-Curated Bookcase

Fabric-covered foam-core boards set at the back of shelves create a decorative backdrop.

Large scale pieces such as vases, bowls and plates fill the gap between books and add a rounded softness that balances out the books' square edges. Natural sculptural pieces collected on trips — such as branches and sea shells — add warmth and personality to the overall look.
