#SHELFIES ARE THE NEW SELFIES!
And I can't wait to share some fun shelfie ideas with you here today. Built-ins can be very daunting to decorate, at least for me they are! However, now I luv it and change them up regularly. I'll share a few tips with you here today that I hope will inspire you to get started!
TIP #1 MAKE YOUR SHELFIES PERSONAL!
Start with some of your favorite things. I luv all things vintage, therefore I rounded up a few of my favorite things. ie. the wooden mailbox, grub pot, globe, Lenox clock, etc..
TIP #2 ADD CANDLES!
All kinds! Here I added some plain white taper candles and wrapped them with a little burlap.
I luv these blue glass candlesticks that I found at The Shops at Cape Neddick in Maine w/ small white pillars.
TIP #3 BOOKS! VINTAGE & CURRENT
Here I added some of my favorite vintage treasures with some old books and some current books on the lower shelf.
I also luv the old clock faces. Here I decoupaged the clock face onto an old book.
TIP #4 FLIP BOOKS THE OPPOSITE WAY!
This will add character, and will also lighten the shelves and the room.
TIP #5 CREATE THE VINTAGE BOOK LOOK!
Remove the cover, back, and spine from old paperbacks and wrap them in twine.
TIP #6 BASKETS!
I'm partial to neutral colored baskets. They are great fillers adding texture AND softness to any shelf. All sizes go...
Now if I can just convince my husband to hide the speakers... Ha Ha! #reallife
TIP #7 FLOWERS AND/OR PLANTS!
I'm a big fan of having living things in each room. It adds to a "lived in", relaxed feel, which I really enjoy. It can be as large as a bouquet of Lilacs from your yard,
a small amount of dried babies breath!
A simple plant...
TIP #8 PHOTOS!
Add your personal photos and favorite pictures, paintings, etc.. Hanging the items on your shelving walls adds depth and personalization.
TIP #9 KEEP IT SIMPLE!
Or your shelfie will look cluttered.
TIP #10 HAVE FUN WITH IT!
