HOW TO STYLE SHELVES - by Splendor Styling
I always wanted bookshelves at home. Books are the best accessory to make a home look stylish as well as welcoming, and I love to use them in my decor.
We have a small place, and not many walls left to decorate. This one is the biggest one in my own home office (are you following the transformation?!) and I wanted to create a big impact as well as maximize the use of space.
Adding bookshelves or built-ins was going to reduce the size of the room too much. So, I decided to install a storage unit and floating wall shelves on top! In addition, I used my favorite stencil to paint the whole wall and create the illusion of wallpaper. I'm all about texture these days! ;) This combination makes the whole wall look as one big piece.
And for the styling TIPS, here are my favorites:
- Always start with the big pieces
- Style things in groups of 3
- Think symmetry, up and down, left and right.
- Always include books
- Plants and mirrors can't go wrong
Do you want to see the process?
Here's a fun video on how I made it happen! :)
