Living room bookshelf decorating ideas can help you manage the shelf in a nice and neat way. Some homeowners don’t feel shy of placing and decorating everything on it. Overcrowding this cabinet would not add anything to the interior instead of messiness and disorientation. Keep this shelf confined to books only, if you love flowers, you can place some by the side of the book stacks in nice order. They should look neat and well in order. Do not place you masterpieces there, this shelf is for books not for artwork unless it is light and small in size.
