Wall Shelves

Hang rich espresso wall shelves for a modern look, or go for rustic shelves resembling timber logs. From traditional to safari style, shelves accentuate a variety of rooms. Find sets of two or three, shelves for corners, and even shelves with hooks for your coats or keys. Go for wooden, resin, or metal in finishes from classic cherry to aged gold.

Add interest to a wall shelf with a decorative Shelf Sitter.

Shelves are every bit as important as the items being displayed on them. These little ledges give a dimensional spark to your walls and bring context to the objects up top, too. If you've only ever gone for the typical "plank-style" shelf, it's time you opened yourself up to more exciting possibilities!

Take, for instance, a pair of rustic shelves fit for a shabby cabin wall. Resembling natural wood logs, these primitive platforms will proudly house your cedar-scented candle or perhaps a DIY star made from twine and birch twigs.

Of course, if your look leans more toward the minimalist side, you can't go wrong with a solid black wall shelf or two. In fact, a series of floating shelves, graduating from smallest to largest in size, forms an interesting arrangement up above. Top these shelves with a couple of egg cup planters, a white matted picture framed in black, or some votive candle holders.

Love the modernity of minimalism, but not big on the stark simplicity of it all? Contemporary decorators will be happy to know that accent wall shelves aren't just for minimalists. You can find a shelf fashioned from interlocking wooden rectangles in sleek espresso. Or, go for modern shelves resembling prismatic diamonds, cut-corner rectangles, and more geometrics.

If you're more partial to acanthus leaves and stylized florals, your best bet is to pick up a few Victorian shelves. Bases formed from a single rose blossom or even a flourishing bouquet can lend grandeur to a blank wall. Plus, show off stately marble designs and feathery-winged angels in finishes from ivory to gold. Wall shelves of a nostalgic nature look lovely when accompanied by small antique vases or even a Victorian lady ledge sitter.

Beyond simply considering design, it also helps to take the room you want to decorate into account. Are you furnishing a small bathroom? Then decorative metal shelves for the corner are a sturdy, space-saving solution. Looking to put multiple smaller items on display in the hallway or living room? Try a traditional wall curio with three wooden shelves for all of your cute miniatures and pretty jars.

Regardless of your specific style, shelves are an indispensable decorating staple. Find a few that work with your look, and add flair along with storage space to any room.
