The Shelfie Formula

Before you begin, remove everything from your shelving so you have a blank slate. Then, gather vases, coffee table books, picture frames, trays, trinkets and special pieces from around your home to work with.

  • Start by placing grounding elements like large vases, and layered picture frames evenly spaced through out the shelves
  • Next, bring in stacks of books
  • Then, add in small trinkets and personal items, stacked on top of the books, layered in front of frames, or sitting in the trays
  • Finally, add some life to your shelves by finishing with live plants and florals
