Take A Shelfie
"The built-in in the living room is actually composed of four IKEA Billy Bookcases (we had a carpenter add the trim and molding to make them appear built-in)," says Elbaum. "It takes some creativity and thought, but this is a great alternative to expensive custom built-ins."

Over-crowding open shelving will create confusion, and detract from standout accent pieces. Give your favorite vases, succulents, baskets and books room to breathe, with considered placement and clever color curation.
