Accessorize your shelves with paperweights, coral and other tabletop accessories. I found some great pieces, like this magnifying glass and Buddha candle. Since your books are the focal point, try to keep your accessories a neutral color.
One part personal assistant and the other part unique décor, this magnifying glass is a cute way to integrate practicality into your sense of style. Use it to help work on an intricate craft project, make reading a little easier on your eyes, or store mail that still requires your attention.
