How to style shelves can be quite the conundrum, especially if they're long, open and floating varieties. Cubed shelving systems, like the style you can get from IKEA, tend to be more easily filled because there are distinct boxes to play within. When those boundaries are removed, people get stuck. Here's some ideas to get unstuck!
Vignettes seems to be a design buzzword showing no signs of going away. Used to describe a brief scene - predominantly featuring homewares or decor - it's become something we all like to take part in creating. I gave vignette queen Yvette Wilson of The Stylist Splash a holler and asked her to share her tips on styling and snapping the perfect vignette. On with the dreamy scenery!
All of the shots in this post are from Yvette's Instagram account and are my faves from her abundant collection. Once you gaze over them, you'll understand why I call her the queen of vignettes; she really has en eye for creating stunning mini moments.

Everyone has an opinion about interior design rules; things you should and shouldn't be doing in your space (they've been doing the rounds for years now). I'm busting four of these design myths on the blog today to show you that sometimes, even the pros get it wrong!

For Libby Walsh, the owner of Prop Hire Online, keeping precious pieces on the website and out of her own home is a definite challenge. “I'm not going to lie... there have been one or two pieces that I purchased for the business that have never quite made it onto the website,” she tells me - and I don’t blame her! The site is not only the go-to space for stylists and event organisers in need of amazing props, but they sell some of the pieces to the general public too (I am dying!).
