Here is the bottom shelf. I chose to display the only books you will see throughout the bookcase, on this shelf. They are all photo books of Rordan, and I can easily say they are my favorite books ever. I chose to stack some decorative bowls on top of a beautiful storage box. In the picture frame you can see a tiny bit of yellow. It's just some DIY abstract digital art. I wanted to add more color to the shelves, and I didn't want to spend anymore money, so I chose to go that rout.
Moving on up to the second shelf. The ball on the left is made up of tiny shells. I had my eye on that one for a long time. Finally, one day it was on sale and I snatched it up before anyone else saw it. I picked the vase up because of its color. I knew I wanted this room to have a pop of coral. It's actually almost red, but just coral enough for me. The large shell on the left is either from Ross, or another HomeGoods find. They have the best selection out of the three stores, so most of this stuff came from their.
I played with these three items for a while to come up with this look. It looks simple enough, but as anyone that's styled a bookshelf knows, it's not. I liked the irony of the large sculptural sphere on top of the small little box, so I kept it that way.
The top shelf houses a display of blue, green, and aqua vases. I couldn't pass any of these up and in the end I'm glad I didn't. They look great together!
And here is the whole thing! I chose to use the triangle/zig zag method of styling. You can see, if you follow the tallest objects on the shelf and move to the next, you will follow it in a triangle/ zig zag pattern. It was a helpful tip I picked up from Pinterest!
In the end, it was a lot of fun to play around with, and I'm pretty satisfied with the outcome. I hope you have found some helpful tips in this post! Thanks for stopping by!
