Obelisks on bookshelves

Bookshelves are the perfect place to display art and objects. I particularly like mixing books and objects for the best effect. Obelisks are natural for this!

I love the warmth of this display - books all around and forming a frame to two pairs of obelisks along with a small cabinet.

A bookshelf in my home

We put books on the bottom shelves, leaving the top shelves for a mixture of Asian and European antiques, along with a pair of black marble and pink onyx obelisks.

In this clean, black and white display the black framed prints, along with the simple modern black marble obelisk stand out against the white clad books and magazine and white flowers. Very shibui!

The designer Timothy Corrigan puts it all together here! He fills a built in bookshelf with books, hangs a wonderful oil portrait on it, and frames it all with a pair of obelisks. Fabulous!

Robert Couturier loves obelisks!

Robert Couturier is one of those classic and fabulously chic interior designers. My eye often stops when looking through magazines or Pinterest on a wonderful room, and it turns out to be Couturier. He often uses obelisks too, and I have a natural radar for spotting them!

 Couturier uses all types of obelisks to great effect. Love them all!
