How to Style a Bookshelf
After three years living in our home, I can’t believe I’m finally styling our bookshelf. Why did it take this long? Well, for one, figuring out what pieces to use was quite challenging. I found myself over thinking and trying to come up with a look that works, when all along I had items I could already work with.
First, you want to come up with a theme…whether it be color or style…For me, I’m all about the vintage/shabby/farmhouse style so I went with the soft pink, soft blue and white colors. I had a couple of books hanging around so all I did was flip the covers for a white crisp look.
I added picture frames and floral arrangements for a nice contrast. My brother got me a vintage jewelry case with a vintage brush for Christmas two years ago that gave it the perfect touch. Just remember, you want to keep a balance between each shelf, stick to a color theme/style and work with what you have. You’d be surprised with what you come up with without having to spend a fortunate on new items. Now, I call that style on a budget!
