We finally finished decorating our living room’s book shelves! It’s been on our to-do list since moving into our home last summer. It was so fun to do!
I found this helpful blog post about how to style open shelves via Pinterest. I really liked the tip about grouping each shelf in threes! I tried not to use more than three pieces of decoration per shelf. I also used this picture from Kristin Johns’ Instagram as inspiration!
I wanted the shelves to remain functional and hold some of our books. Our left shelves have our cookbooks on them, while our right shelves hold some of our favorite books! I organized all of the books by color and love how it looks.
When decorating these, I found it was important to incorporate things that are special and meaningful to us. These open shelves hold our wedding cake topper, as well as some of the first recipes that we used when we got married! Our living room is now one of our favorite places in our home. It’s amazing how a little organization and creativity can brighten up a room!
