Sometimes I try to play coy about giveaways—you know, do a slow reveal—but I can't hold back this time. Comment on this post and you'll be entered to win the white Bungalow 5 Table Lamp and the Chevron Frame from Layla Grayce that I used in my colorblocked bookshelf styling project! I mean, like, how could I not just blurt that awesomeness right out?
Now the backstory. It did take me a long time to style my bookshelf this way: an entire weekend, in fact. And it helped to get an injection of a few fresh home decor items from Layla Grayce. But on the whole this was all stuff I had collected from around the house; what I required most was a vision going into the project, and then a willingness to play with scale and proportion as I worked. There was a ton of trial and error, it got messy before it got better, and it was never truly "done".
As I explained in my post on the Layla Grayce blog—be sure to check out my styling tips over there—this is a really useful way to organize a bookshelf, as you can easily swap new pieces in based on the colorblocking, even arrange flowers according to the palette. Think of it as a weekend of really fun effort that makes decorating a no-brainer for months to come.
