INTERIOR DESIGN TIPS
HOW TO STYLE YOUR SHELVES
STYLING TIP 1
Select A Color Scheme
First, choose a color palette that ties in with the room's decor and stick to it when selecting items to display on the shelves. Look at the existing colors in the room your styling a shelf in beforehand, like the walls, flooring, and furniture. You can use these colors as a starting point for your shelf color scheme, or choose colors that complement them.
STYLING TIP 2
Mix and match items with different textures to add visual interest to the shelves. You can include woven baskets, wood accents, metal objects, or glass items. Below, our interior designers utilized reclaimed vintage wood, textured pots, and unique candles to add a variety of textures to the shelves.
STYLING TIP 3
Adding a touch of greenery to the shelves can bring life to a room and create a calming atmosphere. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, and can be used to complement your existing decor. Choose either faux plants or head to a local florist to get something fresh and in-season!
STYLING TIP 4
Next, you must use items of varying heights to create balance and symmetry on the shelves. This can be done by arranging items such as books, vases, or picture frames in a symmetrical pattern. Plus, arranging items in odd numbers, such as threes or fives, can help to create a balanced and visually appealing display.
Balancing symmetry in your home's decor will help the shelves look visually appealing and well-organized, giving it that professional and elevated look.
STYLING TIP 5
Group Similar Items
Group items in threes or fives for a cohesive look. Our interior designers typically group in odd numbers, to create a balanced and symmetrical display. This can also be done by grouping similar items such as decorative books, vases, or frames, or by using items of varying heights to create an asymmetrical grouping.
