Tips & Tricks: Chic Wall Shelves

If you couldn’t tell from some of our previous posts on the blog, we’re pretty obsessed with the way a thoughtfully styled shelf can transform a space—just ask the queen of the perfect shelfie. Not only are wall shelves our go-to place to store and style flea market finds, knick knacks from our travels, and our most swoon-worthy books, but they also double as one of our favorite ways to display those smaller-scale art pieces (because, duh). Basically, what it comes down to is this—you NEED at least one wall shelf in your life, and today we’re giving you just the push you need. You can thank us later!

Don’t get us wrong, we’d love if we could have beautiful built-ins in every space in our house, but not every room lends itself to such a big (and potentially expensive) undertaking. This is where a trusty wall shelf saves the day—and adds that perfectly-put-together touch to our design. Keep scrolling for the chicest shelves we’re eyeing right now, and make sure to scoop up one or two for that empty real estate on your wall that needs a little love. Now, let’s get shopping…

 

Floating Shelves 

If you love a modern, barely-there look as much as we do, then floating wall shelves will be your jam. If you’re going for a super subtle (yet chic) look, then try hanging an acrylic shelf to make your treasures and prints look like they’re literally floating in space. Or if you’re searching for a sleek statement, opt for something brass or mercury glass, like a couple of the options we included below…

1. Skogsta Wall Shelf in Acacia, $34.99 | 2. Mercury Glass Shelf, $198 | 3. White Tchotchke Wall Shelves, $27.99+ | 4. Metal Gold Wall Shelves, $39.95+ | 5. Double Acrylic Wall Shelf, $27.99 | 6. Cove Marble Shelf, $129 | 7. Ash Floating Shelves, $39.99+ | 8. Piano White Corner Ledge, $14.95 | 9. Floating Wedge Shelf, $79+

Metal Mounted Shelves 

As much as we love a good floating shelf, there’s no denying that there are moments when we need just a little bit more. We love the look of a metal mounted shelf in these situations. The metal accents add just the right amount of shine to catch the light, and adding a bracket suddenly opens up a whole new world of shelving shapes and configurations.

1. Olivia Wall Mounted Shelves, $299 | 2. Lucite Shelf, $198 | 3. Hammered Perrie Shelf, $108+ | 4. Ekby Östen / Ekby Valter Shelf, $17.99 | 5. Kensie Wall Shelf, $34 | 6. Antiqued Brass Shelves, $99.95 | 7. Beveled Wood Shelf, $78+ | 8. Marquetry Shelf, $118

Statement Shelves 

You didn’t think we’d leave out our favorite statement making pieces, did you? For the part of you that truly wants to do the most, here are a few options—from full shelving units to bold brackets—that will stop any onlooker in their tracks…

1. Lucite Arch Shelf, $348 | 2. Tasseled Bracket, $24 | 3. Striped Bone Shelf, $98+ | 4. Mercantile Bracket, $28 | 5. Honeycomb Shelving Unit, $348 | 6. Pheobe Three-Tiered Shelf, $348 | 7. Rose Quartz Bracket, $48 | 8. Gold Circle Wall Shelf, $199

Which type of wall shelves are you gravitating toward?

Let’s just say we wouldn’t blame you if you had to get one of each style…
