I love how these white shelves "pop" against the blue wall...love it! But, look how simple items are used here and the red is displayed as well in some accessories as the accent color. Most of the items used here are ones that you may already have...or simple enough to find.
Or, for a more uniform collected look, how about displaying some pottery pieces for another great, and simple, look.
This look would be pretty simple to achieve...shells, lots of shells! Then add some pottery along the bottom shelf. It's different, but I like it...how about you?
Many times those niches in the wall can be hard to "dress"...so you can add some stacks of books, with some favorite photos and a few select fun accessories that display your personality...whatever it may be.
Here is another example of some great ways to dress up those shelves...and yes, I LOVE this room...it's PINK!!!
Another wall niche...just showcasing dishes. No extra color popped and it's such a nice look too. I do love how the pictures on either side add in the other colors used in the room. That sort of pulls that wall into the room.
Shallow shelving along a wall is the perfect spot for some family photos...what a nice look!
If you are one of those that likes a symmetrical look...then this one is a great option. Very simple but a really nice calming look.
Here is another one with a soft blue back showcasing lots of collected pottery in multiple colors. Just stay within your color scheme to enhance the look.
So I hope these help a bit with some ideas of how YOU can dress your shelves. This is a great thing to do when you start spring cleaning your rooms...try a new "look" on those shelves. I bet you will be amazed at the difference it makes!
Have a "Simply Irresistible" Day!
