Shelfie Styling: 5 quick tips!

Updated: Nov 8, 2022

I am super proud of my first #diyhomedecor project for the office, these bookshelves are perf for storage and display 💁🏻‍♀️


I purchased two bookshelves from Ikea and put them together to create a grander look. Then, I ordered the matching cubbies for the bottom shelf. The silver knobs didn't quite fit my vibe so I swapped them out and upgraded to these these great leather pulls from amazon!


Here are my 5 styling tips to create your own #shelfiedecor moment for your home below. Tip #5 is my favorite - personal touches and story telling in your space are so important! Here are two examples of how I incorporated a personal touch that was meaningful to me in my studio.

  1. The large scale print in the background says, "somewhere over the rainbow" repeated over and over again. This is a nod to my Great Great Aunt Clara who played Auntie Em in the Wizard of Oz.

  2. On the top right of my bookshelf there's a vintage typewriter that was owned by my Grandfather. He was a professional joke writer for the New Yorker and typed all of his jokes on this bad boy. My husband and I also used it at a guest book at our wedding.

For sources to recreate this look for you own, head on over to my shop on amazon to purchase some new styling goodies for yourself!
