But first, let me style a shelfie!

We love a good shelfie around here! 

Today I want to talk about one of my favorite topics: how to style built-in shelves. These types of shelves can be found in many homes, but figuring out how to arrange and decorate them can be a challenge. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get started:

  1. Start with a clean slate: Before you start styling your shelves, remove everything from them and give them a good dusting. This will allow you to see the shelves clearly and start with a blank canvas.

  2. Group items by color: One of the easiest ways to create a cohesive look is to group items by color. For example, if you have a lot of blue books, group them together on a shelf to create a visually pleasing display.

  3. Mix up textures and materials: Don't be afraid to mix up textures and materials when styling your shelves. For example, you could mix in some woven baskets, brass candlesticks, and ceramic vases to create a layered and interesting look.

  4. Add some greenery: Plants and flowers are a great way to add some life and color to your shelves. Consider adding a few potted plants or a vase of fresh flowers to your display.

  5. Consider balance and symmetry: When styling your shelves, it's important to consider balance and symmetry. For example, if you have a large item on one side of a shelf, balance it out with a similarly sized item on the other side.
