We are smitten.... for beautifully styled bookshelves! Bookshelves are the perfect way to add both personality and  functionality to your home.  We think the key to creating a perfectly styled shelf is to "keep it simple".  Today we're sharing a couple of tips on how you can clear the clutter and create an effortlessly chic and amazingly styled bookshelf.

1.  Mix things up!  Bookshelves aren't purely for books friends!  We love a combination of different objects, a favorite piece of art, a great large vessel or a stack of boxes for hidden storage.  We also love a mix of materials -  ceramic, glass, metal and wood are our go-to's.

2.  Keep a color assortment that ties back to the rest of your home.  We're all about making the home as cohesive as possible to create an overall vibe and story.

3.  Add a personal touch and a bit of whimsy.  We recently did an install for a client who has 3 small children and toys galore.  To give the shelf a bit of personality, we placed a tonka truck for a pop of color and easy kid access.

We pulled some pretty items to help you get started... [show_shopthepost_widget id="656615"] xo,
