The key to turning your bookshelf into a stylish design feature is proper balance. Without balance, a bookshelf may appear cluttered. 

 

Start with a clean slate

When you don't have pre-existing decor in-front of you it makes it easier to create new combinations.

Categorize your decor into the "Key Players"

Determine 2-3 colours for a cohesive colour palette. Pick items from each of the "Key Players" categories. 

 

For more information on what "Key Players" are, check out our video on Key Players here.

Follow the odds rule

Things arranged in odd numbers are more appealing, memorable, and effective than even-numbered groupings. Not every space need 3, 5, or 7 numbers. Sometimes 1 item is enough.

Add in varied heights

Varied heights helps add depth and interest. Be sure to layer items and create depth.

Adding books under decor can add height when needed. Books can be styled vertically and horizontally.

Each shelf needs to balance

Create balance by spacing colours, textures and categories of items. Use a triangle shape when placing items that share characteristics. 

 

Having too many small objects can make a space feel cluttered and messy. To achieve a more elevated and cohesive look when accessorizing, remember less is more. Look around your house for items you can repurpose to help accessorize a new space.
