The Way to Designer Shelves
Shelves are very important in interior design. Whether it is built-in cabinetry or freestanding etageres, staging them perfectly will positively add to your space. Shelves take up valuable wall space and therefore deserve to be visually pleasing. Here are my shelf- styling secrets:
THREE IS KEY!
Three books stacked, three candles
in different sizes or three stacked boxes. Things usually look better
in threes. (Left)
If you make a triangle shape with
shape with your hands in front of
your bookshelf you can place the
items at the three corners. (Right)
Layering items such as plants, books or
photo frames creates depth and interest
on your shelf. (Left)
• Mix Metals • Add Wood Elements for Warmth • Use Repetition
• Do not overload your shelves, less is always more!
