Bookshelf styling

It was a decent looking shelf and then I thought with all the light colored decor I have in my house (the grays, whites and creams) I decided my bookshelf needed a little pop! A little bedazzle. If you ever need to give a blank space in your house a little pop just add a background color.

Because I did not want to be too drastic I went with a dark navy blue. I like to think of it more like a Royalty Blue (not a royal blue). It makes Metal pieces stand out (I love the gold and silver hues).

Here’s another tip:

“Just because it’s a bookshelf doesn’t mean you load it with a bunch of books.”

The exception to that is if your bookshelf is in an actual home library. If that is the case I’d say ok that’s understandable. But if your bookshelf is in a centralized area of your home like a living room, then loading it with books is not so appealing to the eyes. But hey, that’s just my opinion, I mean who am I? 😊

Don’t be afraid to jazz up your shelves but keep it simple.

Try laying your magazines or books face down instead of standing them up. Or you can combine both looks.

I buy the majority of my home decor pieces from ZGallerie and HomeGoods

It was a beautiful sight

Have you ever been to Northern California? Specifically Jenner or Timber Cove?

We needed to get away and recharge, reset and refresh. So away with the planning. I planned a 8 day vacation to Arizona and California. We were scheduled to see the Grand Canyon, Napa Valley Winery and San Jose. One of the scheduled spots was Timber Cove Resort in Jenner, California. And this was the best part….

The rooms were nice and the bedroom’s view was breathtaking. To wake up every morning to the sounds of birds and crashing waves was the most relaxing feeling. The air was fresh and the outdoor smell was amazing. Our bedroom had sliding glass doors that opened to the unending expanse of ocean water.

There was no cellular reception here. You can definitely tell the intended purpose of this place was for you to take it all in. There was a restaurant onsite with spectacular food to go with the spectacular serenity. This place is indeed romantic and a place for romancing.

Would I do it again? Perhaps. The drive was a bit nerving but beautiful and breathtaking. The infamous highway 1.

I will say that I can not deny this place was unbelievable. If we ever need a place to fully recharge this place would definitely be a thought of where we shall probably go.
