Simple Shelf Styling

3 Materials

Styling open shelving can be daunting, but using three elements can really help. Dishes, Decor and Greenery!

Grather Supplies

Grab any dishes, cake plates, decor and greenery you would like to use. Shop your home for fun elements to add!

Start Styling

Add sections at a time, intermixing the dishes and decor until you like the look. Add greenery to enhance bare spots.

Take a Second Look

Step back and make sure you like the look. Generally ones and threes of anything look best to the eye. Rearrange until it suits you.

All Finished!

Enjoy your shelving!

    I really like this. Any ideas for basement bar? Rustic but glamorous.

    2 suggestions Keep in mind “balance” - heavy, larger things or items that visually take up more space should be balanced with a group of smaller items. Also consider editing. Once you are satisfied with your arrangements, step back and edit (remove) a piece or 2 and see how it feels. The idea is not to load the shelves with every decorative item you own- avoid the clutter look.
