6 Tips for organising your Bookcases
and using them as Decoration

Once the guardian of a family’s literary heritage, the library is now modernising and opening itself up to other uses, gracefully taking on the role of designer storage. It no longer holds just your books but all your useful or decorative objects and thus becomes the centrepiece of your living room. For several seasons now, The Socialite Family has been captivated by this new use and has therefore chosen to combine the useful with the pleasant by suggesting 6 ways to use it for storage and decoration. Ideas seen in our families’ homes: homes whose interiors are full of tips and inspiring examples, like Emmanuel de Bayser’s carefully curated bookcase with a colourful gradient on the wall. Like him, arrange your books according to the colours of their spines. A rigorous classification that will revive the look of your bookshelves and make them works of art in their own right! Marianne Fersing and Cédric Charbit choose to arrange their books in piles horizontally. Graphic and unique, this second idea can easily be recreated at home to liven up your walls. Another way to organise your literature aesthetically is to highlight the front cover. Whether it is on a display stand or simply positioned facing you, this idea from Sophie Favre allows you to create the kind of refined setting you find in the most beautiful bookshop. The word library implies high ceilings and inaccessible shelves, as in Clémence Dru’s home. So opt for a ladder. A deliciously vintage accessory that is also very useful and that the Como designer has adopted with great flair. Finally, the bookcase can be organised by alternating holiday souvenirs and knick-knacks. A tip that will allow this décor to breathe, as in the Chay household in Marseille. Our last tip – and not the least – is to take advantage of this space to alternate green plants and literary works as Lisa Gachet’s does in her home. An idea that will allow you to green your home and make it a cheerful and colourful place to live.
