Bookcase Styling | How to get our look in your home!

Open shelving filled with a wealth of lovingly collected books and homewares is a classic feature for the well-designed Hamptons styled home and is a key trend for interiors right now. Pull your look together with our top five styling tips.

1. Mix it Up
Team books and magazines of varying sizes with artwork and decorative objects to create vignettes with personality.

2.  More is More
Too many small items look bitsy and add clutter. Use objects with substance to fill negative space and ensure they relate to each other in terms of balance and scale. Typically, when it comes to styling shelves, more is more and bigger is better.

3. Style & Repeat
Symmetry & balance is important, so repeat similar items a few times. If you’ve got a stack of books in one area, try to include one or two more throughout your display.

4. Keep it Grounded
Shelf arrangements are at their best when grounded in neutrals. If possible, use warm whites and ivories, worn woods as a base, then, scatter an accent colour throughout. If you just love to use several colours then try colour blocking by grouping objects of the same colour together to create a visually balanced look.

5. Composition is King
We rarely get it right the first time. Keep playing with the composition, shifting things around until you’re satisfied.
Practice will eventually make perfect.
