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! :)
