When accessorizing for clients, I ALWAYS include books. I don't think there is a more charming accessory than simply stacking unique, nice-looking books on a side table, coffee table, or in a bookcase.
Group books with other eye-catching accessories that are varying heights. Generally, group an odd number (three is usually good) together.

Another great idea is to hang art over the bookcase. Shh!! The art could hide clutter...

And wouldn't grouping books by color really make a bold statement in a room?
There are all sorts of bookcases available.
