Inspiration: Bookcase Styling

Last week, the boy and I made a very adult purchase - this beautiful media center from C&B:

I was home sick yesterday, so I spent a lot of time laying on the couch staring at it (and apparently watching what looks like it must have been some interesting k-pop music videos) and trying to decide how to decorate it.  I think some storage baskets on the bottom shelves would be nice, but the rest is still up for grabs.

Some of my favorite bookcase looks:

Now I need to get off of my butt and actually start decorating!
