How To Decorate Any Floating Shelf

Floating shelves are a great way to add a functional and decorative element to any room. It is important to know how to decorate your shelf to show off your HGTV skills. These rules can be applied to any room and remember that rules are meant to be broken. Have fun decorating your shelves and make them your own! 

1. Odd numbers 

When decorating any shelf, odd numbers of items always help to add a symmetry to things and make it more visually appealing. We have always found the most success when sticking with decor in groups of  3 or 5. 

2. Texture 

Texture is a great way to add some dimension to any shelf. We love to add real or fake plants as our texture. They always help to add color and life to any room. 

3. Color 

Color is a great way to help bring your shelf into the rest of the room. Take inventory of the rest of the room and think about what colors would help to complement the other elements in the or if you really want the shelf to pop, choose a contrasting color to bring your guests’ eyes to the shelf 

4. Anchor item 

The anchor item is normally what you want to be the driving focus on your shelf. It can be centered or offset. This item should be what you start with, and then the other items should work to compliment and help to draw eyes to your anchor items. 

5. Interest item 

Interest item is something that can be changed out with the season or holiday. It is something different and adds a uniquely “you” element to your shelf. 

 

Happy decorating!

I feel like once a year, I get this itch to redo a room. I don't know if I am watching too much HGTV or what, but I can't stop myself from looking at the room in a whole new life and entirely wanting to transform it. My husband has typically talked me down from the ledge and taken the sledgehammer before I take the entire room down to its studs 😂. It is so easy to feel like a room needs a complete transformation to love it again, but a little bit of furniture repositioning and a few new key decor pieces can completely change the look of a space for a fraction of the price.

Who doesn't love a good ole' antique? I always think it is funny when people purchase new decor that is supposed to look old and worn. When decorating my shelves, I always love to mix some seasonal new items with my timeless antiques. I feel like it adds to the character of the space. Adding in new and old things help to add life and dimension to your home, and in my opinion, they help to give it the feeling of being lived in, and if you are a bargain hunter, you can find many of them ridiculously cheap at flea markets, thrift stores or yard sales.
