Awesome, I love seeing build-outs from the very beginning.

You cannae do a hell of a lot with metal shelf brackets but you might consider getting a couple of cans of different coloured stone spray paint. They'll blend in more and be of a lower profile. Even just using something like this and not getting too fancy with it could bring those brackets into the same general tone as your matting or your shelf wood:

We did something very similar at a mate's house and it worked nicely. We tried flat colours but it just looked like painted metal - we did the stone spray paint and there was a nice depth to it, especially under the mood lighting.

Somewhere on here in the past I saw where someone covered metal shelf brackets with two pieces of half round bamboo..that looked pretty nice.

Nice build!
