"Style is primarily a matter of instinct." -Bill Blass 

So you've purchased that really cool shelving unit or maybe have had bookshelves built in to your family or living room area.  Now what? How are you going to adorn those shelves?  This is one the most common questions decorators face from their clients.  You can't leave those shelves empty.  Here are some tips to help you "Style your Shelves"! 

1. They are called bookshelves, so find some of your favorite books or some decorative books to start with on the shelves.  You can arrange your books both vertically and horizontally.  Depending on your style, use vintage books or cool coffee table books.  Don't forget some interesting bookends as well.

2. Layering the heights on the bookshelf are a great way to show visual interest.  You can pair tall items with wider or shorter accessories.  Placing an object on top of books that are laying flat is another great way to add style to your bookshelf.

3. Display collections of objects like vases, sculptures, or geometric shapes.  If you have items that have meaning to you, they can individualize your space.

4. Color coordinate the items on your shelves.  They can coordinate with the color you're using in the room or just add a pop of color to a neutral room.

 5. Decorate your shelves with interesting artwork.  It can be your child's framed finger painting or a special piece that speaks to you.

  • Hi everyone i want to share my amazing testimony on how Dr Graceondu blessed my life, i used to work as a cleaner in supper market, i have been playing lottery game for long now and i don’t usually win, i came across a testimony of someone testifying about how Dr Graceondu prayed for her and gave her a lottery game to play and she won big amount of money, so i also decided to try my luck, i contact him through his website and he assured me that he will help me, he told me it will take him two day to pray for me, so on the second day he gave me some lottery numbers to play and i went to play the game so on that faithful day i went to check the game to my greatest surprise i won a very big amount that changed my status, i quit working as a cleaner in the supper market and i became a company owner.
