I am not neutral about Spring.
I am neutral this Spring.
White, ecru, creamy ironstone, tarnished silver & a touch of bling is the theme of my bookcase these days.
The advice I shared with you back in the Fall holds true no matter the season or the decor.
Advice for Styling a Bookcase
- have strong foundational elements
- have a theme & thread it throughout
- use color & texture
- have a grounding spot where the eye can rest
- toss in something unexpected for drama
Some foundational elements you’ll see carried thru from season to season.
Like the ironstone hot water bottle I picked up on my hiking trip to England. It is perfect on a shelf, as it is meant to lie down on its side. So it will stay put unless it ever gets really cold here in California!
Some new old things on my shelves I picked up on that day I was very very lucky.
The number of white pitchers alone that I scored that fine day are an embarrassment of riches!
Even worked in the topless tureen filled with the yarn (texture) from my Easter decor.
I move things around & re-purpose stuff all the time. New look no cost ~ nice!
The bling (unexpected drama) I mentioned comes by the way of the lovely gift I received ~ coral dipped in German glitter. Everyone needs one of these.
I really enjoy styling this bookcase. It is a manageable size, a clean slate, costs me nothing to do and renders big impact in the family room.
