Montage: 34 Rooms with Art on Bookshelf Fronts

By now you know we have a lot of artwork. We’ve been diligent about hanging, but there are plenty of pieces propped against the wall, and worse, hiding in cabinets and behind furniture, but in some cases we’ve gotten creative. While we haven’t hung art on the fronts of our built in bookshelves, I did recently grab a hammer and nail to hang a lovely nude drawing by Chaim Gross on the frame of the bay window in the living room. I love the way it adds a touch of color and movement to an otherwise bland surface. (The blinds have got to go.)

In related news, my second blog post for Wayfair went live today: “8 Ways to Display Art.” Today’s post is taken from tip #6: Be Brave with Bookshelves. Here are 34 rooms that do just that. Would you try it? Here’s a secret. . . we mounted our flat screen television to the bookshelves in the family room. Didn’t think the shelves would still be functional, but they’re actually fine for DVDs.
