Its like other designers are reading my mind.....here's the next style tip from Better Homes and Gardens' Designers that you might have heard me say or seen me do a few times....
"Get your bookshelves together. Book spines should in eup with the front edge of each shelf, with no more than 1/8-inch of shelf showing. Arrange them according to height, but in in ascending order- make a gentle wave pattern so the eye goes up and down. Organize them so the colors look good. Mix in beautiful art and objects, placing them stragically in some faintly geometric pattern, maybe an X. One more thing: Banish your paperbacks to the basement!"
