Colorful Collection

You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but you can decorate by it. If you’re struggling with the best way to organize your book collection, try sorting them in rainbow order. Create depth by laying some books horizontally and standing others vertically. Add contrast to a colorful shelfie with a neutral paint color like Amazing Gray.

Fun & Functional

Built-in shelves are functional and timeless. Not only do they make a great space for storage, but they’re also the perfect place to display photos, vases, candles and so much more. Make your built-in stand out with contrasting paint colors like Jasper for a deep green, and Snowbound for a bright white.

Crafted With Creativity

Shelves are a must-have in a home office. They keep you organized and display pieces that inspire creativity. Match your shelves to the wall with a soft white, like Alabaster, to highlight your decor and truly give the illusion of a floating shelf.

Shelfies are a chance to showcase your personality with color and style. Share your unique shelf design ideas using #SWColorLove on social media or uploaded them to our photo gallery.
