“This is a great alternative to filling your bookshelves with books, especially if you have a lot of shelf space and not so many books,” says Droessler. We think it gives a nice airy feeling. So, how can you integrate your frames and shelves? The experts say, “Hang a frame on the face of the bookshelf for an interesting look that breaks up the visual lines. Alternatively, you can hang a frame on the back of the bookshelf (or the wall if the shelf has no back.” The Droesslers also suggest lean your frames on a shelf and display with other objects—almost like a cool area of curiosities!
