Shelfie
Shelfie: Clutter-clearing ideas for stylish shelf art | Martha Roberts
93 posts | 1 to read
An interesting response to the clutter-clearing movement has been 'the shelfie' as a decorating trend and social media phenomenon. What started as a label for beautiful bookshelves is now applied to artfully stylish arrangements of collectables, flowers, photos, crafting ephemera, perfume bottles - and of course books. And shelfies don't just appear on shelves but also on tabletops, fireplaces and desks. At a time when we own six times more objects than our parents did, and move house more often, de-cluttering, and then curating our possessions stylishly, is an important way of having a dedicated space that is a 'little bit of us', injecting stylish personality into the home and workplace. In the first book on the subject, Martha Roberts explores the art of creating great shelfies, explaining colour, scale and composition then showing inspiring shelfies in every room in the house, from the kitchen to the bedroom, the home office to a hallway, allowing you to declutter your surroundings without throwing away the things you love in the ultimate form of self-expression. The book's photographer, Nick Pope, took the photographs for At Home with Plants, also published by Mitchell Beazley.

Like mother, like daughters 👩‍👧‍👧
We had to buy a second bookshelf for my girls‘ room cause their books were overflowing!! And I had no idea that their overflow would almost fill up the new shelves 🤓 #lovemygirls

Redid my bookshelf, since I was starting to just shove things wherever they fit. 😬

Due to a tight space, my books are living in a case on the floor of my closet - forcing me to become very creative when it comes to making shelf room for new books! There are quite a few cardboard boxes hidden throughout to give my stacks some structure.

Can‘t wait for the day I get to set up a proper home library! 📚

#30JuneBooks - Shelves: There‘s no more shelf space. There‘s no place for another bookcase. The only option is to start stacking on the floor. This towering stack is one of many from the ground up. My sister-in-law asked me “Why do you buy books and so many at that?” I told her that it is a collection like any other collection...valuable to the collector. She wasn‘t impressed. 👇🏽

Nute So then I dazed her with the statement, ‘the time will come when each and every one of these books will be needed for their author-given purpose. Enough said!‘ I guess this is why my family never gives me books as birthday presents.😞 8mo
DivineDiana I also have no more shelf space, but my family keeps on giving me books! 😂 8mo
SW-T Some wonderful titles in your collection! Love the height on those stacks 😄 If it space that‘s a concern, they do have vertical towers to stack books on. Friend of mine uses them. (https://www.walmart.com/ip/Southern-Enterprises-Tampa-Spine-Book-Tower/17299558) I like the floor maze look myself 😂 8mo

Nute @DivineDiana Is your family looking for a member?😂🤣 8mo
Nute @SW-T Those vertical towers are so cool. I‘ve never seen them before. I like the design, but I have grown accustomed to the ‘floor maze‘ look. Guess I‘ll keep stacking from the floor up!😂🤣 8mo
Nute @Amiable @Reggie on many occasions I think this has got to stop especially when due to a space limitation factor. Then I hear of an interesting book or I see a lovely book cover and all reasoning just fades away.😞 8mo
Nute @Chelleo I know, right? I‘m think that I‘m giving up on trying to explain. Say no more!🤭 8mo
SW-T @Nute Yay! The floor maze rules! 🧡🧡🧡 8mo

Part of my shelves. These are the ones with doors to keep the dust out and to hide the mess. Some read, mostly not read..Initially I tried to arrange according to genre, then group the authors, but looks like there‘s no system now.

#shelfie of my messy library, full of stuff shoved in there at xmas to stash it safely of the way of the holiday mayhem. This pic doesn't show just how unusable the space is right now. My comfy chair is stacked with stuff, there's no room to walk other than a tiny path & trying to reach for a book is treacherous. I haven't had the time or energy to get on there and clear it out but I need to soon! I miss my library! #Riotgrams @bookriot

This 3-shelf case holds non-fiction and some sci-fi, but the middle shelf is for books I think my daughter will like. She grabs a few at a time and puts them on her TBR-shelf in her room, where they remain largely unread while she reads books from the school and public library. 🙄

@MicheleinPhilly #showme I decided to go for the long view rather than the close up. This is one side of our living room/library. These 3 bookcases contain fiction organized alphabetically by author‘s last name. Then out of the shot on the left we have a bookcase of YA and MG. Non-fiction is relegated to its own bookcase in the basement (sorry!). And there‘s a separate shelf for library books and other borrowed books. 😁

Hello Litsy friends! Not sure how or why it‘s been 2 months since I was last here - it‘s very much my bad.

I‘ve fallen down a YouTube rabbit hole for planners and planning. And desk/office tours and sticker organization. And speed cleaning/decluttering. One good side effect is that I‘m getting rid of stuff more often and at a higher volume. One bad thing is that I‘m buying more stickers!

Here‘s a not-great shot of some TBR in the guest room.

Kind of hard in my old house, not much space to shift any furniture that much, but more how to store things, and places to keep them. I would LOVE to see your study/Room Of Your Own, it sounds amazing!!! 😚 1y
LauraBrook @MallenNC Me too! It‘s an endless battle. 😚 1y
LauraBrook @BarbaraBB Yes, that‘s probably a third of my TBR, including the stuff on the bed you can‘t really see. The bin with the white lid is my current “books I‘ve read and want to save” bin, it‘ll live in the basement once it‘s full. At some point I‘d like to have my already-reads upstairs on shelves, but seeing as my TBR is more than doubled that amount, it‘s unlikely in the near future. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Always a book lover... 😚 1y
LauraBrook @Readerann Thank you, my dear! 😚 Will you be doing Dewey‘s next month? 1y
LauraBrook @drbethandherkindle Thank you! I wish we could post videos here, I could do a quick shelf tour. I wish I didn‘t have to double stack, but it‘s a necessity. 😚 1y
AlaMich @LauraBrook Weellll, it is a work in slow progress, but I will share whenever it is finished 😊 1y
Readerann @LauraBrook Absolutely! The last one didn‘t go so well, so hoping we can ROCK this one! 1y
