Bookshelves might be our very favorite thing to style in a home. They make for the perfect blank slate to add personal touches to a home as well as layers and dimension. Depending on the surroundings in a room, the colors incorporated in bookshelves can be an extension of the room’s palette.
It should come as no surprise that coffee table books are our favorite styling element. We stack coffee table books in shelving to create varying heights and a dimensional look. They make the perfect styling tool because they can be edited as frequently as desired to easily refresh the look of the bookshelves.
The most personal pieces we include are picture frames. We typically do not place frames from room to room throughout a home to avoid a cluttered feel, so shelving allows for personalization by grouping family photos together in a stylized way. While frame selections vary from person to person, our go-to is a streamlined look, primarily consisting of solid silver frames.
Last but not least, we add in objet items such as boxes, trays, catchalls and heirloom pieces. Doing so creates an additional layer of texture amongst shelving.
