Like all things in summer, the lighter and airier the better. This goes for home decor as well as fashion. I have THIS little marble shelf from CB2 just above my bedside table and because it's just a little accent shelf I love to switch it up for each season.
This is to give you an idea of where the shelf is and it's size.
Like I said, the fewer the pieces the better for summer. For this all I used is THIS print by one of my favorite artists, Claire Elsaesser. I have several of her prints throughout my house.
For the vases I used three glass jars I got from Ikea yeeeears ago. They're actually different shades of blue glass but I spray painted them a matte white and then used THIS paint to paint different designs. For the little dashes (which my boyfriend says looks like a pink matrix :) I used a toothpick to get the marks small enough.
And there ya have it!! It doesn't require a lot to decorate an accent shelf, especially when using such a fun and bright color! And remember you can change some of the pieces you already have with a quick coat of paint! Have fun with it! It's still summer after all!
