Add Depth to Your Shelves
Painting the inside of your bookshelves a dark color can make them look like they extend much farther back than they do, especially when the rest of the walls are painted a light cream or white, like this room HGTV star Candice Olson designed. The burgundy shade is a refreshing break from the typical choice: navy, gray or greige.
