Complementing your classic book collection

Notes:

  • Classic hardcover books – meaning those books from days past or from a hardback collection – add color and mystique to room decor. These hardcover books come in different colors and styles that look great against a wall display on a bookshelf.
  • So if you collect hardcover books – and if you are going to display them on a bookshelf – the question is what kind of background wall color would look best that would compliment the look of the books?
  • In the illustration above, the collection of books on display are stacked up against a dark blue wall background. Note how the blue accentuates the book display.

How about a bold red background

Notes:

  • Red is a stunning color – and it just might be the perfect color for your book collection. It depends on whether you want to make just one wall in your room red (where the books will be displayed) or use a combination of red painted walls to decorate the entire room.
  • We suggest a more darker red against the book display – a darker red would accentuate the colors from the books better. The goal is to spotlight the varying shades of color coming your your classic book collection.

Dark gray can work too!

Notes:

  • How about a dark gray background for your “book display”? Gray is neutral – and it come be matched up against the varying hardcover book colors.
  • Gray has become a popular color for living rooms and dens. So try a dark gray against the wall that will have your book display – and another shade of gray on the other walls where you stage your furniture and sitting areas.

You can use a tan or off-white

Notes:

  • Not something we would recommend – particularly if you have a nice classic collection of books.
  • But if you collect all types of books – including both hardbound and paperbacks – a light color background might work best.
  • Note that a lighter color will brighten up the room better – something you might want for your reading area.

Which background color looks best?

Notes:

  • Your book collection may be displayed on a simple floating shelf that expands the length of the room.
  • You have in this image 3 background displays: 1) painted light blue cabinet; 2) shaded green on the wall down the middle; and 3) an offwhite that borders the green
  • Of the 3 colored backgrounds, which one color looks best with your books? Well, that depends on you. That’s why you want to choose a color that works best with your book collection.
