Creating small vignettes, will add interest, by combining special ornaments and decorative items you use throughout the year; remember to keep the scale in proportion to the pieces you want to highlight. A cube-type display shelf affords you smaller vignettes, and you can place some foam board cut to the exact size of the cube, covered with fabric or wrapping paper, to enhance your display. To create small scenes within your bookcase, you can paint small boxes that fit your shelves, leaving the open end of the box facing the outside of your case, so your special scene is easily viewed.
Go for a colour that compliments the rest of your furniture. Solid wood or a wood finish is the best choice and looks more traditional. You can get some good ones made with a wood effect that are fairly cheap but look the real deal. Try and invest in real wood if you can as it is long lasting, however, you do not need to if you cannot afford it.
Bookcases can be simply that, a place to hold books, or they can be a variation with a combination of shelves and drawers located at the base for additional storage. Some people don't even use for the purpose they were made for! Instead they show off their beauty by using them as display cases with vases, photos and other interesting items out on show.
