How To Style Shelves

One of the most common things people ask me is how to style their shelves, and my answer is always, “books!!” You can never have too many books, as they will neutralize décor, like picture frames and accessories. Books give your shelving a more sophisticated and polished look! I recommend grouping books together, horizontally, and using them to elevate frames and give varying heights and interest. I also love the rule of thumb that shelves should be 70% books and 30% accessories. Here’s a video below of how we styled a shelf for a client, and a close-up photo of how we styled another client’s shelf!
