What does your Shelfie say about you?  

A shelfie is a reflection of your personality and style. With over 1.4 million posts and counting on Instagram, this really proves that life is better with a book. #CHLSHELFIE

To celebrate valentines day and that beautiful thing called LOVE, we have styled our own romantic Shelfie. 

The Shelf 

Using two pieces of recycled iron sheets I have crafted a love heart shape. This has been done with a MIG welding machine. I have painted the outside hot red and left the inside untouched to create a chic industrial look.

Colour tones

For the colour tones, I have used warm reds, purples, and pinks. Picking contrasting colours such as black, grey and yellow for a backdrop can really make the books on the shelf pop.

The Books 

Sourced from the country house library of goodies, I chose a mixture of editions, including, observer, penguins, and ladybirds. Some older and chunkier books work really well against smaller books with the addition of some quirky bookends and unique trinkets.
