CURRENT OBSESSION: STATEMENT SHELVING

Chic shelving and successful storage can make or break a room. Think ‘less is definitely more’ and try to simplify the clutter by storing more than you display. Be ruthless in editing what you show off. Try the following tips for successful shelving displays:

1. Uniformity: whether it’s displaying the same type of items or displaying items of the same theme, try to simplify what’s on display. If you have many books, colour code them or only display those with beautiful spines. Perhaps display only books related to design. Try stacking them repetitively in identical clusters.

2 Display rustic elements on a contemporary shelf that are all similar and or related. Collections of beautiful pieces that are related make sense and tell a story. Avoid dust collectors.

3. Open shelving doesn’t have to be messy or distracting. You can display your crockery as long as the collection is ordered and each items has it’s place. Keep colour to a minimum and let the pattern of the shelving and display pieces do the talking.
