Let’s break out a bit of feng shui and pretty up some shelves, shall we? Kickin’ off this fresh-faced season with a summer shelfie refresh!
So take everything off whatever shelf is calling your name and begin with a good ol’ fashioned dusting; the simplest way to juzzsch up the energy in any home. #goodvibesonly
#1 | Mix n’ Match The Practical and The Pretty
Function is of utmost importance, especially in the kitch sitch. However, open shelving needs a little form to give it an edge.
Narrow down a list of everyday items—such as dinner plates, snack plates, a serving bowl, etc.—then mix in found objects to show off your style and personality.
It’s critical to utilize your most oft-used items to avoid those pesky dust bunnies! And since it’s summer, crystal flutes for bubbly are a must, amirite? 🥂
#2 | Stagger Heights for a Balanced Look
Now that you’ve gathered a combination of form and function items, position each by varying height and consider grouping in odd numbers.
Here, for example, the wall sconce acts as the seventh object. The statement artwork and candlesticks balance the height while drawing attention to the high ceilings.
Batch similar and everyday items together with the easiest reach (unless you’re a tallie, then have at it any way!). Commingling a textural cutting board and a contrasting found object like a marble jack sculpture elevate the composition.
PRO TIP: Keep it simple and embrace negative (open) space!
#3 | Finish Off with Fresh Cut Florals
Breath life into your refreshed shelfie with fresh cut florals. It’s June Bloom right now and these limelight hydrangeas were cut right from the Brigham garden. An airplant and succulent always add a precious, lively touch.
