Yep, it’s true – shelf styling is a thing, and here’s how to do it.

When’s the last time you thought about giving your shelves a makeover? Probably never, right? Well, now’s your chance. Shelf styling is the hot new trend in the interiors world, and the good news is it’s really easy.

We know shelves are really meant for storage, but beautifying them can make such a difference to a simple space. So, next time you’ve got a spare Sunday afternoon, take a look at our tips… and don’t forget to Instagram the results!

Clear a space

Start by clearing your shelves so you have a blank canvas. If you have things that need storing, keep them tidy by packing into pretty boxes like these decorative tins. Get rid of any rubbish and make sure there’s space to style!

Sort your stuff

Old books, framed photos and kitsch trinkets will look great on your shelves, but don’t overfill them – the cluttered look is not what we’re going for here! Keep it neat and streamlined by organising books by colour and relocating extra items.

Get styling!

Adding a few stylish touches will make all the difference to your shelf space. We love these sleek marble candle holders, and this cute cactus vase is perfect for displaying a single bloom. If your shelves sit in a corner, this plant pot will look great hanging underneath.

Look out for copper finishes, monochrome prints and flashes of bright colour to really bring your shelves to life.
