Indigo Shelfie Recipe

Bare shelves, Bare shelves Everywhere!

There is an epidemic of bare shelves in the world ever since Ikea started making cheap stylish bookshelves. Decorating shelving units can be overwhelming, we end up shoving a few odd pieces on there and try not to look at it. Wondering why the shelves on Pinterest look amazing and ours look half cooked? 

I'm going to tell you a secret, you can totally have amazingly styled shelves in your home.

This week's Accessory Recipe is a shelving unit with pops of indigo. I've sourced everything from online retailers, so you can buy the whole kit and kaboodle and have a badass styled shelf in your home by next week.

Happy Shopping!

Holden Vase

This vase brings warmth and texture, while still maintaining a bright white. I love the ribbed detailing, adding interest to a simple object. This is a subtle kind of design element. One that you draws you in slowly.

Faux Potted Trailing Succulent

I'm all for real plants, love the life they bring to a room. Let's face it not all bookshelves get enough light to have real plants growing. I fell in love with this one because you would never know it's a faux plant, but you still get to cash in on all the green goodness it brings to your space.

GEOMETRIC PATTERNED BOX

I love adding a box to a bookshelf, it just screams "what's inside me!" to me. When ever i'm visiting someone's home boxes always stand out to me. Something about a stylish utility item just floats my boat. In this design it adds a bit more blue, and helps balance the color throughout the entire bookshelf.
