Tip #1: You Can’t Go Wrong with Groupings

Odd numbers are your friend here. Start with groupings of 3 objects you want to style with, and then vary the heights of those objects. Try adding height by stacking books or trinket boxes and don’t forget to incorporate greenery!

Tip #2: Inspire Visual Interest by Varying Your Item Heights

Another styling tip is to also vary the colors and textures within your groupings. This will help add visual interest to your space, and avoid anything looking too bland. Remember to leave some negative space so your shelves don’t look too crowded!

Tip #3: Style Your Sections Asymmetrically

Lastly, whatever you did on the left side of your shelves, you shouldn’t do on the right. That’s right, you’ll want to make sure not to style the exact same way on both ends of your shelves, otherwise you may make your home look like a retail store. Have fun here and mix it up!
