The easiest, quickest and least expensive way to transform your space is to restyle your bookcase. Forget spending money on new tchotchkes, all you need is to take a look at what you already have and regroup, declutter and color coordinate.
Most of the time the biggest transformations in styling your space comes from taking things away, not accumulating more. We love trinkets, candles, books, lamps, woven bowls and weird flea market statues just as much as the next girl, but sometimes honing your style comes by scaling back your collectables. Pick a few that speak to you and the others, maybe find another home for.
Stacking books is always a good choice. Stacking books page side out, is a nice little trick to keeping things calm and neutral. Or embrace the crazy colored bindings and clump them by hue. Lay them horizontal in groups of 3 or 5 and top with a plant or candle, flank vertical stacks with geode books ends, a little gold lamp or a pretty wooden bowl filled with like colored beads or flowers. Think layers, textures and color!
Dont forget to accentuate the depth of the shelves, giving your shelfie some dimension. The best way to do this is place framed photos or paintings in the far back of the shelf and then later smaller trinkets towards the front.
