Style Your Shelves with These Decor Elements!

Open shelving is a trend that I don’t anticipate is going anywhere any time soon. I have loved incorporating this design element into our cosy home but I know the thought of styling your shelves can be intimidating. What do I put on the shelves? How many pieces do I put on each shelf? Where do I source all these gorgeous decor items?

Don’t fret! I’ve curated a collection of decor items that make styling your shelves fool-proof! Any of these items paired together would look amazing whether you pick just two or all five of these different style elements to incorporate!

1 | Vases

This modern Celia White Vase has the coolest 3D features that add a ton of texture to a space with just one piece.

The Adra Vase has a beautiful herringbone pattern that’s contrasted with the dark, warm tones at the top and bottom!

You can’t go wrong with this Teak Wood Vase, a classic piece.

This honeycomb vase is everything. I’m an avid fan of bee’s and the hexagonal honeycomb pattern that they magically create.

This recycled glass vase by Joanna Gains is obviously inspired strongly by her love of farmhouse decor and I can’t get enough of its unique shape.

This vase also has a really unique shape and is engraved with a abstract design!

2 | Candles

The candle that is on every influencers Instagram feed!

If you’re the type of gal who likes to decorate with candles while also catering to your type-A personality then these ones are the ones for you.

I love the vintage vibe that this crackle candle gives off and the colour is a beautiful warm green.

This small form candle screams bohemian and comes in multiple different colours!

This glass cloche candle is super unique and something that I’ve never come across before. It brings a classic element while also being modern at the same time.

3 | Bookends

These ones are probably my favourite, the white marble looks sharp against the small gold detailing.

This question and exclamation mark set seems pretty basic to me to be honest and yet somehow they’re so neutral and fit the theme of an avid book reader!

These ones serve the soul of someone who is all about their farmhouse home.

This set reminds me of a staircase haha, nonetheless I think the stark black would definitely pop amongst the books it’s propping up!

I love pulling in different natural elements to make our home feel cosy and connected, these fit in perfectly and definitely draw your eye.

These vintage gold brass ends remind me of my great-grandmother! So cute.

4 | Baskets

This one is a bit pricey but you can’t go wrong with the scandi vibe that this seagrass rectangular basket emanates!

Faux wicker is definitely a tried and true. I use them all over my home for storage as well as decor.

This Woodard & Charles basket boasts dark rich leather handles. My favourite feature for sure!

This wire shelf basket is another farmhouse decor find and looks great in the kitchen.

Loooove these storage hearth & hand baskets that incorporate a gorgeous deep blue throughout the weave.

5 | Table Books

A classic! This LV & Marc Jacobs is high end therefore a tad-bit pricey but the quality doesn’t fall short of its price tag.

Following the scandi/boho vibes of my own home, this copy of down to earth features hygge elements all throughout.

Cozy white cottage, need I say more?

One of the biggest themes you can find throughout my content is my love of being cosy yet still lookin’ cute! In comfort and style definitely falls in that category.

Chanel– another high end classic must-have see all over IG.

The Tom Ford book! Given that it’s cover wrap is black and white, this high end classic fits in with most decor.

The finer things is a look-back over the years of interior design and of the many different components that have ultimately led to where we are today.

Okay, did Joanna Gains write this book specifically for me though? Homebody is a manifestation of everything I am as a person. And the book is super cute on your shelf, too.
