Confessions of a Decorator…

When it comes to shelves in homes…there is the good, bad and the down right over done!  These first two shots are excellent examples of work that is very well done.  The first one as I have noted in the caption has an excellent balance.  The pic to the right uses space…to the an element of rest for the eye…a needed touch in the current style direction for interiors today.   Plus the second pic is great for those not wanting to completely commit to using wallpaper…great area for the new peel off wallpaper!

Great use of space and touches of color...keep the eye moving!

Now for the bad and and over done!  Shelves need to have a movement…keep the eye moving throughout the entire shelf.  When they are open…they are not for storage ( stacks of paper)…but for display!

This is not bad…a little heavy looking on the right!

Wrong!  All weight at the bottom...things look lost no point of interest!
