It’s shelfie time! Yes, this word has been floating about for a while now, and it’s easy to see why. Shelves are a timeless way to update your home décor, whilst being super practical as well! Not only do they jazz up your wall space, but they are perfect for anyone who loves a clutter-free home. Stylish shelves are all over social media right now, so hop on the trend and get decorating! Here’s how:

Pick a cohesive colour scheme

Choose décor items that complement each other well in terms of colour. Additionally, spread the colour out. You want your shelves to look like a well thought out display, so avoid colour blocking.

Be selective with your display items

Pick out decor you love and opt to curate your accent pieces over time by collecting items slowly! Not only will you make more thoughtful purchases but you will have a story to tell about each item.
