How To Style A Shelf For Spring With Decocrated

This post is sponsored by Decocrated. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Spring is the perfect time for a decor refresh around the house, especially after looking at our walls so much more this past year. Creating a styled bookshelf is a simple way to keep your decor feeling updated and on-trend. With a curated seasonal home decor box delivered straight to your door from Decocrated and a calculated approach you too can style a shelf just like an interior designer!

Follow these simple tips for ideas and inspiration using pieces from the Spring Box, available for purchase now!

Look at the Negative Space

Instead of selecting pieces and then finding a space for them to go, work backwards. Look at the negative space you have to fill on your shelf and try to find items that would fit complimentary into that space. Working with the negative space on your shelf will keep it from looking cluttered. When your decor looks intentional, it’s an immediate mood-booster!

Vary Heights and Textures

Try to change different heights and textures between items placed next to one another. If you have a stack of books, try to break it up with a plant before adding in a family photo album. A great way to ensure that your decor varies in a trendy way is to keep the permanent items (books, family photos, heirlooms) and switch out seasonal decor in the leftover spaces.

Include Stylish Decor

The best way to feel on-trend is to buy a trendy item or two. This can be a harder task for some people than another, and one great solution to take the guesswork out of great decor pieces is with a subscription to Decocrated. Decocrated is a seasonal home decor subscription box that includes 6-8 curated items that work harmoniously together or perfectly as stand-alone focus pieces. They have also recently introduced a member’s only shop, selling single home decor items at substantial discount to what you can find on other retailers. Love the holidays? An extra perk for members are their exclusive Easter, Halloween, Christmas and the New Americana boxes!

Put it all Together

With your new decor from Decocrated, you can swap out seasonal pieces on your bookshelf with each new quarterly delivery.  Staple decor will remain strategically placed to fill negative space throughout the year and with a quick, simple switch your shelf will be updated with fresh and on-trend pieces from Decocrated.

Styling a bookshelf can feel cumbersome with all of the hats a mom wears. When there’s already caretaker, chauffeur, chef, teacher, and more on the list… interior designer doesn’t need to be piled on. Instead, all moms can enjoy a Spring decor refresh with a couple quick tips and a fun subscription to Decocrated!
