Design Tip Thursday

For the first instalment if Design Tip Thursday I thought I’d share one of my favourite ways to add decor to a long blank wall with nothing going for it except it’s size…. and that usually makes us freeze when it comes to how to decorate it. Insert floating shelves!

I love using floating shelves to add style to an otherwise blank canvas of a wall. The reason I lean towards floating is because of the modern, streamlined look. If the shelf fades into the background you can show off your decor!

When it comes to styling shelves in a living room or family room I usually stick to a neutral color pallet and have fun with textures and patterns.

My other truck to styling your shelves is to always add green ( plants) and balance both sides out. So for instance if you have brown rattan and white on one side make sure to add those colors to the other side but down one shelf. So you are creating a zig zag effect.

Lots of the items I used are older or thrifted but I will share similar ideas and styles bellow. And never forget the advantage of shipping your own home. This saves time and money and you never know what you have laying around that you can use!
