Modern Minimalist Shelf Styling For The Spring Months
Updated: Apr 18, 2021
Hello friends! Welcome back to another round of Seasonal Simplicity Spring Series! I'm joining several of my blogger friends who are sharing unique spring mantle or vignette decorating ideas - so if you are new here - welcome! And if you are a frequent visitor, so glad to have you come by. Thank you for visiting today!
If you remember back to fall 2019, I made over my two story great room for the One Room Challenge and added these great built in shelves. You can see the room reveal here. Since adding these shelves I've really enjoyed styling them for each and every season! Today I'll be sharing some tips that help me style these shelves in a modern and minimalist way for the spring months.
The warmer months for me are a time to pare down and style my home in a casual way. I keep my decor airy and bright and opt for light and reflective accents when styling.
Keeping with the pared down theme, I always de-clutter my shelves and only showcase a few pieces. This gives my eyes a break and really makes things light and airy. Items that I always keep on my shelves are sentimental things such as family photographs, heirlooms or those that remind me of fond memories.
Repeating similar decor items on the shelves is a nice way to keep the look of your shelves consistent. For example, cluster a group of vases together and opt for similar styles of photo frames and alternate the sizes. This will keep your shelves streamlined and will be visually appealing.
Floral stems are a great way to add visual interest to your shelves. I use them year round and alternate them depending on the season. In the spring, I typically opt for pops of color with some greenery. No matter your choice of floral stem, choosing to use the same colors consistently on all of your shelves will allow your shelves to appear cohesive. The same goes for the color of your vases. Multiple colors of vases and flowers will make your shelves appear "busy" and may be visually overwhelming.
If you loved these tips and use them to style the shelves in your own home, I would love to hear from you! Leave me a comment below, tag me in your instagram post using #thisissimplicite or email me! If you would like to refer back to this post, feel free to pin any of the images! Happy decorating!
