[Project Notebook] Bookshelf Styling

So...I shared on Facebook the other day that we made a little purchase over the weekend. We had been constantly moving, tweaking and changing one wall in our living room, but our choices never seemed permanent or right for the space.
 
I had initially thought about doing a huge pieces of artwork on the wall, but my husband thought that shelving would be perfect. It would fill the space, provide functional storage (which you all know is at a premium in an old home) and would visually provide a separation from the entryway.
 
We ended up getting this from IKEA...

And, I pulled ideas and inspirations from these gorgeously styled shelves...

I'm still working on perfecting the styling, so I'm not going to share just yet. But know this....my house is a disaster and I am trying to find the balance between a filled space and a cluttered space. You all know I hate clutter.
