I am working on the finishing touches to Prince Charming’s office. I am so excited, but I have discovered the Achilles Heel of this project – bookcase styling. It is stressing me out. My hubby has a ton of books and magazines, none of which he wants to part with. And he is king of paper stacks – just piles of papers here and there and he swears he knows what is in all of them. Soooo, I am trying to devise a styling plan that will make both he and I happy. I have found some ideas.
I like this idea – books going this way and that is a kind of sloppy yet curated display.
Or this one which carries on the ocean theme! I need to have more books and less ocean life to make it work. But I like the vintage cloches and crates to hide stuff.

I like the look of this with the books turned backwards, but it isn’t really practical. How do you know which book is what?!
This one by Suzanne Kasler is awesome! Great mix of baskets and books, but we still have waaaaaay more books than this!
Rainbow books by Elle Décor. I really like this idea! It’s very cheerful! This is probably about the right volume of books for us. Oh my!
This is a great mix of baskets and books. I think this is what I’m going to aim for!
Photos of the office are coming soon. We need to hang the curtains, get the desk situated, find a rug and, of course, style the bookcases.
