How do you decorate a shelf?
Are you a pile them high or a keep it simple type? Or are you what the heck! Shelf decorating?! Is that really a thing?...
Here's a few tips for finding your own style
Decorating a shelf...sounds simple doesn't it, but I would like to share a few design tips that can help your shelves look their best, and no I'm not going to ask you to throw out all of those nik - naks from Great Aunt Edna ...although the William Morris quote is often quoted for a reason - " Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful". I get it, some things have a lot of sentimental value, but do you really need to have everything on display?
Think of it as curating your space - it doesn't have to stay this way forever, it can be changed whenever you like...but it allows a few beautiful objects that you own to have the space to breathe and bring you joy each time you look at them...
Some Ideas to get you started...
And whilst you're taking the time to organize why not listen to some great music from Rebecca Ferguson, remembering that all that glitters is not gold... feed your soul instead...your shelf will thank you for it!!
In this space which has no ceilings, walls or doors... I would like to invite you in, and share with you, personal work, current trends and inspiration from every day life...
