Is the “shelfie” the new gallery wall?

We think the gallery wall is a keeper yet like the gallery wall, perfecting the #shelfiegoal is an art.

To get that Insta perfect bookcase, here are 5 tips designers use:

1.Books

Go for beautiful covers. Use a variety of sizes. They must be beautiful. They will be propped up and simply stacked.  It ain’t a shelfie without books.

2. Cute print

Placing framed art/print on a shelf is unexpected yet eye-catching,

3. Sculptural element

Something dramatic like an orb, a bust, vase, even a bowl helps to create interest and structure.

4. Create playful vignettes

Let each shelf tell a story. Style each one different to create movement and balance. Make groupings. They can be clusters of similar items or completely different. Take into consideration height. You’ll want some things with height for drama and interest. You want the eye to dance amongst your shelves with delight.

5. Add some natural elements

You’ll need some texture. Natural elements are a lovely way to achieve this look. Think baskets, plants, gemstones, shells, coral, branches, horns, etc. Be adventuresome here and have some fun.
