Do it Yourself

Den built in Shelving Tour

When we bought this house one of the things that attracted me to the downstairs design were these built in shelves. 

Learning how to style them without making them look too sparse or cluttered has been a learning experience.

Now that I’ve gotten the hang of pairing different design elements, it’s become such a fun challenge. For now, I want the shelves to be clean and simple with little pops of color.

I think my DIY artwork provides a nice backdrop for my knickknacks without making the amount of things on the shelf look overwhelming and cluttered.

I repeated a similar look on the shelf on the other side of the fireplace as well. 

When decorating the shelves I’m always looking to add objects that reflect light. Using glass and metallics seems to do the job.
