For the furniture retailer, accessorizing bookshelves should be about reinforcing the decorating theme for the entire vignette. Select books and accessories that accent or highlight the colors in your furniture setting. For example, if you are doing neutrals and pale greens in a vignette, the books and accessories could include dark green, and accent color, and some neutral color pieces. You can also keep the accessories thematic. If you are playing up a well traveled feel with the furnishings and fabrics, then the accessories should also have a global feeling.
