Place painted foam board in the back of the bookcase, giving the look of a painted bookshelf w/out the commitment. Love this idea for a small book shelf next to couch. Good way to use yellow without committing to it in a big space.
I love the idea of a natural landscape superimposed in ultra clean design. I had grand plans to paint gold bamboo on my green bedroom walls. This is infinitely more elegant. And doesn't involve the ACTUAL outdoors.
