Contrasting Bookshelves


A friend and I have been back and forth recently on whether we like the look of contrasting bookshelves.  As in one color at the back of the bookcase with (usually) white shelves.  Some use paint, others use wallpaper and my final opinion, like most anything else, is that I like it when done well.  So tell us..... what do you think of this look?

Love it! Adds so much to the room and highlights the shelves. I prefer the neutral paints to the printed wallpapers, though.

I love these book shelves! Shelves are one of my most favorite things to design/play with! I've yet to do a contrasting background though...
