WEEKEND AT HOME / 69

shelf styling ideas | designlovefest

shelves can be a huge eyesore sometimes. we tend to stuff in books until they’re overflowing, and never actually organize them. i wanted to share some shelf styling ideas so you can store your favorite books and keep your shelf pretty at the same time! here are a few tips. #1: have a color palette for the shelf. i’m kind of obsessed the all-white example below, but you can add in a few colors too, just keep them consistent. tip #2: mix things up for variation and shape. don’t just include books, add in some art, plants, and fun accessories. #3: play around! style a few books horizontally, then a few vertically. fill in some spaces with accessories and spread everything out so it doesn’t clash or fight against one another. happy shelf styling! erika

WEEKEND AT HOME / 68

pretty desks | designlovefest

i’m a big believer in making your environment inspire your work. we spend a lot of our time working, so it’s important to make your workplace a space that makes you feel goodit looks pretty and improves productivity. i’ve talked about decorating your desk here, but the first step of designing your dream office space is the actual desk. i built mine from IKEA, and you can also add custom legs if you want to create something more unique. here some some pretty desk ideas so you can work at a space that feels serene. erika

WEEKEND AT HOME / 67

splurgy-worthy kitchen accessories | designlovefest

this week i wanted to share a few favorite items i’m seeing for the kitchen. aside from the usual kitchen essentials, i always get more joy out of cooking when i have a super special piece to use with my creation like a beautiful plate to serve the food on, a gorgeous cup, or pretty silverware. i tend to get these extra special items while traveling so that i have something to bring me back to a special time in my everyday life, like my favorite mug i bought in barcelona to remind me of that trip each morning when i make my coffee. it’s one of my favorite ways to give a little boost to the daily things in life. here are a few pieces that are splurgy-worthy kitchen accessories to help brighten your everyday! erika
