Trending: Built-In Shelves

I just love built-in shelves! I think they are classy and timeless and can come in such a variety of forms and colors! Plus they are easy to reinvent- all it requires is switching around what's on them! The key is to keep a consistent color scheme throughout so they look styled and not just a place to store junk!

My favorite is the white shelves on white wall look, where everything just blends together. Probably my favorite because I have such built-ins in my living room! On the eastern side of our South Philly rowhome, some previous owner closed in two windows, so we had these awkward alcoves sitting side-by-side and they needed something! So I commissioned my dad to build shelves in the spaces and he did! They now house my growing milk glass collection!

Below is a picture of one of my spaces (not 100% polished but you get the idea...), followed by some more inspiring built-ins I have scrounged up!!

  1. I’m obsessed with 2 & 3! I love the diagonals on the Emily Henderson shelves…and of course, all the fun decorative pieces in all of them. I need some shelves like these just so I have an excuse to collect more stuff! :)


adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
