Shelfie - Your Guide to the Perfect Bookshelf



#Shelfie-Your Guide to the Perfect Bookshelf
Bookshelves are not just a backdrop in a room, but a major focal point. 
They even have their own special hashtag - #shelfie. 
You might think they are only for books, but the most interesting shelves showcase framed photos, objects and art, as well as great books. 
When faced with a wall of empty shelves, even a design pro can lose courage. Or, more daunting, is a collection of items that don’t work well together. The successful ones highlight the wall with a pleasing visual tension through shape, texture, and color, and not just stacked books.
Your choice of books, from the latest designer coffee table gems, to classic tomes, can create a visual facelift in seconds. Think colorful dust jackets on your books to give a pop of color. Though, a strong statement of black and white is another design staple that can be used for a dramatic effect. Place books vertically and horizontally to create interest. A horizontal stack can be used as a base for a special object. Books are a strong component in defining the overall structure of the display, if used correctly. Sometimes you need to update your books.  
Frames are another, often overlooked, quick fix for the shelves. 
Look for frames with clean lines and a uniform look. 
A mix of frames in wood or silver, or other materials, is distracting to the eye. 
Uniformity is your friend when grouping beloved photos for display.  
Interesting objects are another great resource when styling bookshelves. These can be treasures gleaned from a life of collecting, or items that currently speak to your personal aesthetic. Now is the time to have fun with displaying, and use items in unexpected ways.   Trays can be used vertically as a backdrop, creating a sort of frame for the objects in the foreground.  
Look at your books and considering updating titles with an eye towards color and visual interest. 
Stack books vertically and horizontally.
Edit your objects for the best impact. 
 
Use objects in unexpected ways. 
Trays as backdrops, vases as objects, boxes on top of stacked books - creating a treat for the mind and discerning eye.

below are photos of book shelves I love !!

needless to say, I love monochromatic.

the blazer is scattered flowers woven into the fabric,
they are every color, from turquoise to hot pink to red & green.
navy pants made the outfit come together in a smart, new way.

of course, I'vce been playing with flowered fabrics for
1 Year

every piece inspired by the Italian designers.

here's one little dress &

of this garment

Days in My Life



the beautiful youngest grand-daughter, Holland, who turned 3 yesterday



wearing one of our LA LA LAND dresses



orchids in my living room window




my rock-star Maltese named Bono
straight from the groomer




I am going to try to post more images of 
WHAT MY LIFE IS REALLY LIKE

it's difficult for me, as for years now I have thought showing all
this personal stuff was akin to bragging or showing off.

but, life changes, doesn't it?

and I actually really enjoy seeing 
ALL OF YOU at home, your outfits, your pets,
your girlfriend get togethers and all that.

in August this year it will be my blog's 
9th anniversary.  
Wow, seems unbelievable that much time has passed,
as I remember agonizing over my first post
inspired by the brilliant Joni Webb, 
of Cote de Texas
another Houstonian blogger.

below, some of the new Fall/Holiday T-Shirt designs

just samples for now,
but soon in actual production

we are so proud of the wonderful reception
La La Land 
has received from all you bloggers & InstaGram'ers

thank you !!





I'm in love with these little 
APPLIQUED 100% COTTON DRESSES

all inspired by children's books & the fact that \
every parent and child loves
birds, flowers and animals.

they also LOVE color.

I thought we would make some of them with 
sleeves of a different print,
like the horizontal lines with patterned sleeves.

it's a super creative process, 
and playing with big swatches of fabrics
is like going back to pre-school again.


fun !


Ripped Jeans "Couture"




OK, now Chanel has this on the runway !!!

NOT a fan!

I know I know all the younger girls wear these things, but as much as I try to 
"get it" I just don't.

What's your opinion ?


don't forget to check out the
Girl's Collection in the shop
