I am in the process of changing things up in our guest room. One of the first changes for the walls were the addition of white shelves, mentioned in more detail here. I got wonderful feedback when I asked opinions for sprucing them up a bit! I took all ideas into account when I went out shopping at a local boutique. They were having a spring open house, with everything 10% off! I went there hoping to find some inspiration, and walked out with 4 more additions to the shelves- all for a great price! (I always love to search for unique finds at boutiques and small owned shops- it’s such a treat when they wrap it up all nice and pretty for you!) And since most of the objects on the shelves (including the shelves) were gifts, I felt a little shopping trip was a great idea! So without further adieu, here are the revamped shelves:
I think it looks more full, without being too busy. I added texture, natural elements and witty quotes to give the space some unique interest. When I found the very textural green ball, I knew what the room’s color palette would be: shades of blue with pops of green and gray! I loved the little bird and thought of Kat’s post here.
And here is a reminder of where the shelf love started: (Before)
And After (again!)
(I still plan to change the matting on the Italian frame!)
I had so much fun with it! I cannot wait to work on the rest of the room. I have lots more up my sleeve!! This will be the room in our home where I will take the most risks and use bold colors.
Thanks so much for all of the wonderful ideas and comments on my first “shelf love” post! I really appreciate it. To see all of the great comments and ideas, visit here.
