Styling shelves

Hubby has put up my new shelves in the living room today and I have spent most of the day ‘faffing’, trying to arrange a selection of pictures and other decorative items! It’s harder than it looks and they are still sitting there, bare!

So these are the shelves I’ve got:

Ikea I have one which is 55 cm and one 115cm.

Amazon This is a set of three.

Like I do when I’m looking for any inspiration, I turned to Pinterest. I’ve chosen just a few of my favourites to share.

I love the mix of frames, plants and decorative objects in this arrangement from The Kmart Forecast.

These shelves from House to Home display a mix of black and white frames, and family snaps and art prints, interspersed with mini candles and plants.

These pegboard shelves from are amazing! I definitely need some hanging plants for my shelves and I also like the height the mother-in-law’s tongue plant gives. I hadn’t thought of adding a mirror – that’s definitely a possibility.

Now for the hexagonal shelves:

I know these are not the same as mine, but they are a similar size and they are perfect to display mini cactus plants. These ones are from Etsy.

Carrie Making Lemonade has also displayed some things on top of her shelves, which gives even more surface space for display.

Urban Outfitters have a gorgeous selection of decorative objects perfect to display in shelves of this size.

My shelves are not ready to be photographed yet; I need to go shopping for an assortment of different sized frames, a couple of hanging plants and some mini cactus plants. And then spend a few more hours ‘faffing’!
