A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross.

Whether you’re stumped by a living room layout problem or you’re looking for ways to change up your space, don’t forget the value of strategically placing your furniture.

You can throw in knick knacks made of silver, brass or wrought iron on the shelves and on window sills. Plus, wooden side tables as well as opulently done coffee tables would look nice.
