Style Sunday: My Bookcase Christmas Gift

This is my big Christmas gift I received from my parents early. It's the Avington Bookshelf in Dark Tobacco I've wanted from Target for years now. It's a more sophisticated option than the collegiate IKEA Expedit unit to store my beloved books (and white pieces). This is how I styled it...

The second shelf is full of books on Italy.

I need to think of what to put on top though... 
A big white ceramic piece?
Possibly a pyramid of larger coffee table books! 
(I have four tall piles on the lower shelf of my cocktail table as well as four in my end tables.)

Here's a detail...
The clock sits on three of Nina Garcia's style books.
The clock's time is always happy hour! ;)
An owl from West Elm serves as a bookend for my books on France.
