Great Shelf Decor Styling Ideas on Amazon
Hello beautiful people and happy Wednesday! Thank you so much for landing here today.
It’s Wednesday, and it’s feeling all hot and sticky like summer. I hope you’re enjoying this time with friends and family, getting outside, and staying hydrated. The days are longer and you either love this time of year or you can’t stand it.
I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with Summer mainly because I was at work all day. I love how my co-works are always gushing for Summer and can’t wait for warm weather knowing good and well DC is a swamp during this time of year and there are no “nice” days.
But, since working from home, my brain has had time to decompress and I enjoy those quiet summer mornings and warm nights.
Have you ever been to someone’s home and they really great little knick-knacks and shelf decor, that they’ve been collecting over the years?
I’ve always wanted that because I’ve never had much in the way of decor for my shelves and surfaces, except when it comes to the seasons like Fall and Winter, or Halloween and Christmas. My decor has been minimal because our shelves serve the purpose of holding all of our DVDs…and yes we have A LOT.
A Few Tips
- Make sure your shelf styling reflects you. Add in souvenirs, trinkets, or something you’ve collected.
- Add family photo’s in nice frames, special tickets, program covers, or display your favorite artwork.
- Feel free to mix metals and textures, like brass, gold, or pottery pieces.
- Add in a small book collection or coffee table books.
- Live or faux plants always add color to your space, and most of all you’re not married to what you decide to add, you should change it anytime you wish.
The only thing I get to decorate is the top of each shelf, and one in between, but that doesn’t stop me from loving all the trends. I’ve tried o only bring things into my home that I’m going to love and keep for the foreseeable future. I’ve given away so much decor it’s crazy, either because it’s no longer my style or it was an impulse buy.
For this post I moved most of the DVDs (5 baskets in total sit on this bookcase alone), to show some simple styling with items I have in my home. Only two things are newly purchased.
One// This is my entire shelf // Note that my vinyl is kept on a small Kallax because they don’t fit vertically in this space. Two// is a small wooden hand from Amazon and one of my collected cameras along with some of my old books.
