Over the past year, shelf styling has taken over our Instagram feeds. In fact, just a cursory search for the term #shelfie fetches over 1.5 million posts. If you would like to jump on the shelfie trend, we recommend going for display units and other storage furnishings that feature an open shelving design. This is a great way to show off all your favourite knick-knacks while also bringing colour, personality, and life into the living room. To get that Pinterest-perfect look, arrange your items by height or colour. It’s also a good idea to take inspiration from the rooms colour palette so that your display ties in nicely with the overall look of the space.
But why are we even talking about blue in the first place? Well, it is back, see. And like a lot of things, we can thank the catwalks for that. "The worlds of fashion and interiors have a close bond, but not a co-dependent one," Amy cautions, adding, "in the case of blue though, it is a story that found its feet in fashion. Shades of soft blue started to emerge last summer but have continued into spring/summer 19 collections with baby blue coming through strong".
When styling a black and white room, you’ll want to incorporate statement decor, such as a bold rug or accent pillow, to complement the furniture. Use bold pillows to create a crisp focal point with a sprawling white sectional or smaller points of contrasts with two loveseats. Experiment with other types of home decorative accents – such as an arc floor lamp or rustic wall clock – for an effortless way to refresh black-and-white.
