Simple and Stylish Shelves

After the Holidays I tend to feel like my decor needs a little freshening up. A good place to do a quick update can be your built in shelves (if you have them) for some people styling them can be intimidating. I thought I’d share with you a few things I look for when I’m searching for items for my clients shelves or for my own. Built in Shelves-Benjamin Moore kendall Sylehouseinteriors.net

I’m a big fan of neutral decor, especially with my charcoal built ins. I put together some of my go to items that will work in any home.

When styling my shelves, the first thing I do is shop my home for books. I gather as many hard back books as I can find, if I don’t have enough, I make a run to the thrift store. I remove the covers and look for neutral bindings. If the bindings are too bright, you can grab a can of light colored spray paint and paint them (make sure you cover the pages). I usually place the books with the pages facing out for a different look. I stack some laying down, and stand others up for variety.
Bookcase styling
Once I have some books in place I add my decorative items, I love to use Goedes, starbursts, brass orbs and frames. Use the slider below for some ideas. Click on photos for source.


Other favorites include decorative trays, and boxes. I have my eye on a few below!


I usually add some faux florals or succulents as well.


I also look for some interest pieces such as ginger jars or a horse sculpture, they are seen everywhere lately.
