8 accessories you need for your bookcase

I have to admit styling is definitely something I need to work on some more this year. I’m good at designing spaces with furniture, wallpaper, textiles and putting schemes together, doing  the spatial planning and all that but when it comes to actually styling a room for a photo shoot that’s a completely different ball game which I have to improve on. I know some designers hire stylists for photo shoots to show off their work and I understand why they do it.

The best way for me to get going is to know some basic accessories which will always help me with styling my projects and in particular the bookcase.  So I thought I share them with you so even you can create a nice bookcase display in your home that looks great and well put together.
