We’ve been living in our new house for about 7 months. Everything is coming together exactly how I envisioned it! We have radically transformed the space and turned it into something so cozy!

If you’ve read our holiday home tour, you know my style is very minimalist. I am very much a “less is more” person. I actually like the walls to be kind of bare. To me, it feels so open and clean.

However, we had this giant white wall right when you walk in, and it was almost too empty, even for me! So we decided to hang 2 IKEA lack shelves, and decorate them!

Here’s the white wall I’m talking about. It’s just a little too plain and needed a little something.

First we leveled the shelves and hung the brackets.

We hung the shelves about 18″ apart.

Then started adding some decor!

I like to style the shelves with things of the same colors. Not too busy, but I like it to look complete. Thankfully my mother in law is an interior designer and helped me decorate them! Thanks @graceindesign!

Greenery is one of my favorite colors to add to the home. It gives a minimalist home a cozier vibe. We added some snake plants, as well as some ferns. The fern leaves are actually fake. We cut them off a plant and flattened them in the frames. I love the way it came out.
