With the rise of ‘shelfies’ online, many people are looking to the humble shelf as a way to add some extra decoration to their rooms. Popular designs utilise a simple floating shelf, quite often in neutral colours to adorn with a variety of small homewares. Not only is this an easy way to create a style that looks effortlessly chic, it gives you a place to store all the little knick knacks and mementoes that you collect day to day. Nostalgic books, candles and photo frames are common items found in this style and can be picked up cheaply from retailers such as Kmart. Indoor greenery and succulents (for the novice green thumb and hardy enough to withstand the most infamous plant killers) can be planted in colourful pots to bring an on-trend and inexpensive pop of greenery to your room. For inspiration check out #shelfie and #shelfiesunday to scope out how some seriously drool-worthy designers have worked their shelfie magic.
To bring some light to your space, hanging mirrors can help bounce the natural light from windows and doors around the whole room. Play with different frames and styles of mirror to see what suits the shape and style of your room, with ornate brass frames and minimalist sleek panels both bringing a touch of class. For a more creative use of mirrors, arrange a variety of small mirrors in a pattern around the walls. Combining different styles, sizes and frames will create an eclectic and ‘thrown together’ vibe and can easily be picked up from your local second-hand shops.
