The bookshelves in my home are a mess. Well, no. Not a mess. Just…crowded. I have a weakness for used books and trinkets and things, and I like to have them all displayed. While I like looking at all my stuff, it certainly doesn’t look put together. That’s why I was excited to find this post by Mindy at Finding Silver Linings. Check it out for tips on how to style a shelf like a pro:
-Choose a color scheme, and stick to it. Keeping the colors somewhat limited, you create a sense of unity in the overall look. Objects that don’t necessarily “go together” will look right if they fall into the chosen color family.
-Layer shorter things in front of taller things. This creates a sense of depth. Vary heights of objects.
These are especially useful as staging tips for anyone trying to sell a home!
