I love a good shelfie! Styling has to be one of the most fun aspects of design.
When it comes to styling shelves it's all about balance, editing and layering. I always start off by stacking and placing the coffee table books. A little tip- try and keep the book binding colors down to 3 or 4 (gray, white, black and your accent color). If you have a large library of books, color coordinate them or strategically place the colors throughout the shelves. Once you've finished with the books, then begin placing the accessories. Shelves are a great place to showcase your art, collections and greenery. One of the biggest no-nos is packing the shelves so full that they look unorganized and messy. You want to be able to see what you have on display.
