11 No Fail Objects To Style The Perfect Shelfie

via The Everygirl
This prolonged winter weather is really bringing me down. You too? I'm counting down the days until I can throw open the windows, do a bit of spring cleaning and get my rooms feeling fresh and new.

I'm looking forward to styling the shelves in the office and bringing in some new decor. Styling can be daunting but with a few well chosen objects, you can have your shelves looking as instagram-worthy as the one above. Isn't it perfectly balanced and interesting? Something natural, something gold, geometric is good too...I've found there's a bit of a formula for getting that perfect shelfie. Here's 11 no-fail objects that can have you styling like a pro.

  1. Start with natural, organic objects like pieces of driftwood, smooth rocks, or a whitewashed sculpture to bring warmth and softness to your shelves
  2. A shiny brass paperweight or word art adds sophistication. Place it on a stack of books for more presence.
  3. For interesting contrast, fill this muted brass vase with bright florals
  4. These sea glass beads ooze coastal charm, even if you don't live by the sea
  5. Clear glass boxes offer endless display possibilities. Use them to store smaller collections or more delicate objects
  6. Are your vignettes looking too feminine? A geometric sculpture can bring balance 
  7. Opt for decorative boxes with interesting patterns and colours to liven up your display
  8. A candle, especially one in a pretty package, adds both functionality and style
  9. A pair of bookends brings a sense of symmetry and order. Showcase them with old books from the thrift store - just be sure to pick the ones with the prettiest spines!
  10. Blue and white ginger jars are very trendy right now. I love the artistic quality of this one
  11. You can't go wrong with a classic bust. The traditional shape works well against more modern objects
