Pile ’em highStacked against a wall, like this, or even piled up against a pillar, books displayed vertically as opposed to horizontally can look very effective, and the arrangement makes good use of a room’s height instead of its width. For a display as tall as these, don’t just stack your tomes on top of one another, as they could all topple down in a health and safety nightmare! Instead, fix mini floating shelves at regular intervals up the wall or pillar to create the illusion of a freestanding stack, or seek out one of a number of specialist ‘invisible’ vertical bookshelves on the market. This will also make books easier to retrieve, since they’re not in one continuous, Jenga-like stack.

Invest in vertical bookshelves Book towers are a great solution for narrow spaces and they work well where built-in storage isn’t an option, such as in rented homes. They’re unobtrusive, yet store a good number of tomes.If the classic Ptolomeo bookcase is beyond your budget, consider buying a few Umbra Conceal bookshelves to create a similar effect.

In the living room, Kaczmarski painted the walls grey to keep a neutral palette, layering in a zigzag floor rug and vertical bookshelves to let the spines of her books serve as graphic accents.Rug: Rugs USA; pouf: Lulu & GeorgeCheck out more geometric patterns

Take it tribalChevron stripes are ideal if you’re after a tribal look. The graphic print is reminiscent of safari animal stripes and looks fabulous against cool grey walls, wooden furniture and zingy green accessories.
