as you can see i have been having this lazy blogger syndrome. i just have been doing stuff offline more than i am online these days and i don't want to force myself to blog for the sake of putting some posts up when my heart isn't fully at it, if you know what i mean... do you feel like this too sometimes?

apologies for being so slow at posting these days, i have been really busy with work and moving house... i haven't been doing any sparkapolooza briefs, i'm behind with all my blog readings and i completely screwed all my healthy may plans too :( 

it's ok, it's a new month (can you believe it's june already aggghhh!) and i need to be positive and get motivated and start eating healthier to make up for what i lost last month.

still in the spirit of moving house, i've been eyeing a lot of interior eye candy so bear with me if my next posts would most likely be around this topic. 

we haven't got any new furnitures at our new place as our budget was pretty much spent for renovations, so i've been quite fussy with decorating and styling and organising because small details matter and can make a difference. my next mission is bookshelf and above are some of my likings found on the internet. here's what i've learned:

▲ put different styles of stacking your books. have them stood up, piled up or tilted.

▲ colour coordination. light coloured, dark coloured or certain shades of coloured books sitting together.

▲ add some frames of photos or artworks. or show off a few of your nice looking book covers facing front.

▲ few stacks of boxes would be nice and handy to keep your stationery or knick-knacks.

▲ last but not least, combine with some natural coloured objects so not too overpowering the books, which are the main feature of what a bookshelf should have. i found white objects being used a lot - vases, candles, small sculptures. and globes are very popular too.

i now have some homework to tidy up and hunt for a few artworks to put on my bookshelf. have you got any articles about bookshelf styling that you've come across? or maybe a picture of your own bookshelf to share? do send the links through to me!
