Remember a few months ago when I talked about how new pillows can instantly update your space and doesn’t require a major investment or overhaul? Well, today I’m here to share the same can be done with your shelves!
Simply updating the items on your shelves, repositioning them or swapping them out makes them feel like new. A well styled shelf makes a statement as a focal point or can be used to pull all the colors in the space together with accessories.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when styling your own:
- Group items in on odd numbers as it’s more pleasing to the eye
- Vary shape and height of items to create different lines for the eye to follow
- To keep shelves from looking cluttered and thrown together try to keep a common color story or theme (think all things related to travel or all things blue and white like I did)
- Always add books, they are a good space filler, makes you look well read and can be stacked various ways for height or padding
