After this apartment tour and this bar cart post, several of you left blog and instagram comments about my bookshelf styling. I am by no means a shelf styling pro, but I’ve tried to pack these shelves with as much as I can while still keeping them looking somewhat orderly.
I like to mix up vertical and horizontal sections, while showcasing some of the more special trinkets and items,changing up the dimensions on different shelves.
While I wouldn’t let Christian bring his mounted deer head to California, we did bring these antlers. They remind me of Christian’s family’s farm and hunting land in Mississippi…and if I have to hear about him missing duck season ONE more time…
It was fun to mix my fashion books and pink geode bookends with Christian’s medical books and bookends. His and hers!
These Tiffany’s playing cards are just the cutest gift ever. A fab Christmas gift from my mom years ago.
I had been wanting a skull for a while and lo and behold Christian won a plating contest at the hospital, winning a prize…and this fun little guy (we named him Hector).
More about this little eiffel tower here.
More about this vintage globe here.
I just wanted to show some more detail of the shelving and how I try to visually break up each section, while still utilizing the shelves for storage. Don’t be fooled…inside that basket on the upper shelf lies a ton of loose receipts!
