I love styling the built-in book shelves in my living room. It's so much fun accessorizing the shelves with changing seasons. Today, I am sharing few styling tips for a winter white decor.
My simple rule for styling bookshelves is: CTS
C for Color
The greenery adds a splash of color in a predominantly white background and accents.
Next, T for texture.
I think, color plays beautifully when paired with texture and creates a dramatic impact.
The stacked books on my shelves wrapped in Kraft brown paper add wonderful visual texture.
The boxwood ball housed under a glass cloche also adds color and texture.
These golden mini pine cones add beautiful texture.
Especially, inside a clear glass apothecary jar
This beautiful cream and gold box on the top shelf ties everything so well.
And, S for shine
The golden sunburst mirror adds wonderful sparkle and shine
Love the contrast between the shiny votive and the texture of the brown paper wrapped books.
So CTS (Color, Texture, and Shine) is my design principle when arranging and rearranging these bookshelves and I apply this same principle when creating vignettes. I create mini vignettes on each of these shelves and they all work together so harmoniously. Don't you think?
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope these tips inspire you to jazz up those mundane bookshelves around your house.
Have a great weekend!
