Styling Bookshelves


This post is sponsored by Home Depot.

Bookcases aren’t just bookcases anymore. Long gone are the days where you simply line up your books and throw in a couple picture frames for good measure. No, bookcases have been elevated to Instagrammable status with their own coined hashtag: #shelfie. At the same time, they do provide a lot of storage. They have almost become a necessary evil.


I have quite a lot of books and home accessories that are special to me, and I have been looking for a modern bookshelf to display them on. I found the perfect shelves on They were quickly shipped to my house and easily assembled. I originally was going to put them in my family room, but since Elle’s old room was turned into a guest room I saw an opportunity to finish the space with these shelves.


It turned out beautifully! You can check out Home Depot’s blog to see the full post about how I styled it, and below for a list of items.
