28 Mar The Shelfie
I am known for my trinkets – and the shelves I put them on! So this week on instagram, I am highlighting some of my more recent “Shelfies”. I also wanted to spill a few tricks of the trade on how to get that perfect shelfie look.
Bring In Height //
By adding in taller objects with shorter ones you can create a beautiful balance and layer your trinkets.
Something Reflective //
Mirrors or glass works perfectly for this – even something framed.
Something Natural //
Placing in some wood or even plants or floral arrangements creates some natural textures that make it beautiful.
Make it casual, like you just placed the items on top of each other – effortless is the way to go here.
Make it Imperfect //
This isn’t a puzzle and there is no right or wrong – don’t worry about making it perfect or precious.
It’s YOURshelf //
Put things that you love and make you happy when you see them – personal photos, good books, colors that soothe you.
Throw in Everyday //
If the shelf is in your kitchen use pretty utensils, spices, matches, candles. If it’s in the office put a cup of pens, or a chalkboard.
Make it a Bar //
Who needs a bar cart when you’ve got a SHELF! Throw on your favorite spirits, mixes, and vessels to serve them in and you’ve got your “shelf” a party. ha ha
The most important thing about creating a shelfie is making it yours and making it live with you!
