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.
To be honest, we love bright hues and exotic patterns. So, of course, we fell head over heels when we spotted this living room by Alida and Miller. Here colorful textiles from around the globe warm up the bohemian inspired space with downright funky style. A horse painting picked up at a local thrift shop is a nod to 1970s counterculture. Quirky accessories like the decorative swans on the floor and the phrenology head on the end table are right at home in this unique 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".
