2. If your bookcases or built-ins do not have a lot of architectural interest, have them painted the same color as the walls so the structure disappears and let the contents shine.
3. Add interest to a boring white built-in by painting the back wall a great saturated color such as navy, aqua or lime green.

6. And remember – a jolt of color is often the key component of modern decor.
