I painted the backs of the built-ins a medium teal color, and it was the best paint decision in the entire house. The color mimics the teal in my curtains (which you can just see in the previous photo) and makes everything on the shelves stand out.
I have a dickens of a time staging shelves. I think styling bookshelves is a special skill some just have, and I don’t have it. I have read numerous articles on how to do it and no matter how I try to balance items, or make visual V’s, or play with depth, it still looks kind of meh.
