Colored shelf interiors

At the moment, I'm loving colored shelf interiors.

Let me show you what I mean:

The deep color in the shelves is stunning! And that pink pouf is so fun in what is otherwise a very mature and elegant space.

This blue is a little too bright for me but it defiantly makes a statement and becomes the focal point of the room.

The green makes the shelves feel brighter and lighter than if it were wood colored.

This would surely make a statement in any room.

This piece is a cabinet, but the wallpaper idea can easily be used in shelves. The different patterns make for a very unique look.

I lined the ends of my hutch with green decorative paper. It's much brighter and less formal with the green.

If you do decide to add color to the back of your shelves, the decorative items displayed should replicate the colors found in the room. 
Example: If you look closely at the first image, you'll notice that the browns found in the cabinet tie into the chair, the silvers link to the silvery color of the couch, and the whites link to the white fireplace mantel. This is also visible in the second image.



  1. Me to it brings some rather plain shelves to life, I especially like to see wallpaper used. I think kits a great idea to have a feature wall match with shelves or even making an artwork piece out of spare wallpaper cuttings

  2. What a great idea! Maybe I can do this to a cabinet I have in my living room. Never thought of this. The problem now is trying to find a good wallpaper. I can just picture the mess I'm gonna create now :(

  3. I love that wooden hutch with the green interior and how great is that cabinet with the all the different wall papers. I generally hate wallpaper but never thought to use it as a furniture accent.
