Lucy's tip: how to style a shelf

When it comes to simple home renovations, styling is the icing on the cake and a chance for you to add your own personality and really bring a room to life.

Styling should be fun so make sure you make the time to experiment and try lots of different things. You’ll be surprised what treasures you find.
Pick your large items first and place them on the shelf, then you can see the space you have to play with.
Style in odd numbers to create balance, you want to use 3, 5 or 7 items on a shelf.
Cookbooks are the perfect way to create a pop of colour and show your personality.
Fresh herbs look great and smell fantastic in your kitchen. Grab a small planter or a vase and add some freshness into your space.
